This is an island countertop we made for a customer. Hopefully I can get some pictures after it is finished and installed.

How do you manage to flatten a top that large? Do you have the world’s biggest wide belt sander, or do it in sections, or something else entirely? Impressive scale on the final product.

That baby looks flat as a pancake from where I sit!

Did you use those “Barrels O Clamps” in the second picture to glue it up?

Can’t wait to see the finished product!

huge! My guess is you do it in 24-30” strips through the wide belt, then glue and sand with a D.A. Or do you have a connection to a machine we never seen? Very impressive

Awesome top! I worked for a custom cabinet shop and would have liked to offer something like that! As others have mentioned, could we have some details about cutting, prepping, gluing, construction, etc. Thanks.

great job, and yes I also would like to know how you got it sanded so flat.
The biggest drum sander I ever saw is 4 feet, most are 3 feet wide.
