Has anyone used one of these?
I’ve got a bunch of used maple butcher block tops that I need to resurface that are filled with 1/8” deep dents. For weeks I’ve been thinking about the best way to do them. Hand planing out 1/8” dents doesn’t seem like the best use of time and energy for doing this job.
This Woodhaven Planing Sled requires that you supply the rails.
It’s not clear to me how the work should be supported with this setup. In the video the work appears to magically float above the user supplied rails. :)
For the sides of these maple butcher block tops, which also have 1/8” deep dents, I was thinking about using an portable electric planer to remove the 1/8” dents as I don’t own a jointer.
