This is a slab leveling jig that I made to flatten rough lumber that is wider than my planer can handle. I also needed a way to plane a curve into some panels for a hope chest. (Will post when its complete).

Pic 2: Results on rough silver birch
Pic 3: By adding these curved rails for the router ride on I can plane a curve. Center the work under the cenerline of the radius. The radius of the panel depends on the radius of the rails. These had a 5’ radius.

Let me know what you think and please share any improvements that you can think of.
Thanks for looking
