Here’s a project where we wanted to make the old wood look new. We have a pile of red oak I’ve been making countertops and tables from. Here I laminated a bunch of 3/4×2” strips together to create a long grain butcher block countertop. It sure is nice having a widebelt sander for projects like these.

Very jealous of the wide belt sander. Sure makes for a nice table top.

Gorgeous! I am green with envy, if only I had a belt sander right now…

What band saw did you use to laminate the wood? I wish I have belt sander.
By the way, you did that very well.
