MNgary- I’m going for a very simple contemporary look. I’ll be selling these tables on the cheap, so volume is important. The design is a slab atop black steel legs. My goal is to launch with about 30 pieces of furniture. Splitting and warping (i didn’t know controlled warping was a thing…) won’t be desirable, but I’ll stick in a butterfly joint if splitting happens. Does that give you more info to work with?

runswithscissors – I looked into getting a #7 plane, and was shocked to see the price. Maybe down the road I’ll get one, but for now Im going to go ahead with the router method. I’ll use the grizzly bit that you suggest. Does this method wear on the router a lot? i.e. is there a minimum router horsepower?
