I’ve been wanting to make one of these, just a quick little thing. Finally got around to it. I wanted to make some clock faces out of walnut cookie slabs from a tree my Dad had cut down and I needed this to plane the faces. Right now I’m just using a combination of grip mat, boards and clamps to hold the piece down while routing. Eventually I’ll incorporate t-track into the base with hold down blocks that can be tightened up around the log. Its made mostly out of scraps I had laying around with a good coat of paste wax to keep things sliding nice. Last pic is my first planning job (one of the pieces of walnut). Thanks for looking.
