What do you LJ’s use to grind out wood. I want to create a live edge and am looking to bypass the whole “trial and error” thing and get some much needed advise.
What do you use to hog out wood?
Is there different grits or stone or metal grinding wheels?

Thank you in advance.

30 grit zirconium belt on my belt sander will eat some wood.

I just remove the bark and then go at it with a wire wheel brush (this leaves a nice live edge). Use a face shield with the wire brush wheel as it will shed some wire fragments. I use an air die grinder which makes this go REALLY fast.

Let me restate the question. I want to create a paux live edge. and I’m sure there are some LJ’s out there that have attempted it. Any body try making their own live edge out of a dimensioned lumber?

Rotary rasp in a die grinder, then buff with a wire wheel.
