Anyone in the east bay NorCal have a planer that can run a 16” cutting board?

I made two cutting boards, edge grain, and need to plane than square. I plan to make them into random end grain boards for a wedding gift. My planer is not up and running yet.

Beer or $ for your time of course.

I know people run in grain cutting boards through planers but not mine. If something goes wrong it could damage the board and the planer.
I’d look for someone with a drum or wide belt sander and preferably the wide belt. Yes you can call me chicken if you want. :)

No no, I don’t want to run an endgrain through the planer. I know that’s a no no.

I need to run an Edge grain. Just a regular cutting board. It’s two wide for my 13” and the old 16” I restored needs 3 phase that I don’t have yet. I need these cutting boards square and flat cuz I plan to cut them into strips and then rotate them, making an end grain board.

Hand planes spring to mind, that’s what I used on this edge grained
butcher block.

I think you need some more glue on the left upper corner. :)

Sooo….

Does anyone have a planer that can take a 16” board and free this weekend or week? Live near Norcal East Bay?

The two cutting boards I have are edge grain so they can go through a planer.

I’d hand plane them if I 1) had hand planes and 2) didn’t need them perfect.

I need them planed via a planer because once cut into strips and rotated, the planed surface becomes the mating surface so they need to be totally square.

I’m not sure what this means either. I checked and there aren’t regional forms.

There are a number of co-op clubs in this area that rent by the hour for access to their shops.

I’ll run them for him if he wants to pay for mailing cost. All mail orders get a free piece of Muktuk.
