I am not sure if this is the right place to request this, but I figured, what the heck?
I purchased some tiger maple that I am going to re-saw into pieces approximately 4” x 14” x approximately 5/16” thick. The problem is that my planer is not the best and on the sample piece, did not provide a very good finish.
I would like to inquire if there is anyone in the area that has a thickness sander that would be willing to surface these pieces for me? I would like to keep them as close to 5/16” as possible, but I know they may have to be sanded to 1/4” (did not re-saw all of them yet). I would like all of the pieces to be the same thickness, regardless of what thickness (1/4” min thickness though)
I work in Villa Park and live in West Chicago (suburb about 30 miles west of the city of Chicago) so ideally it would be a suburb in that area.
If I don’t get any response, I will start contacting cabinet shops in the area, but thought I would give it a shot here first.
I would, of course, be willing to pay for this service. I will have about 15 pcs of approximately 4” x 14” that I would like surfaced.
Thanks in advance!
