Topic tags/keywords: jig question end-grain cutting board

So I have a few students making end-grain cutting boards, and am looking into making a small router sled to be able to flatten them after glue up.

Is anyone willing to share pictures/plans of their sleds? its not going to need to be crazy big, just something to accommodate boards 10” wide by 20” long (at the most).

Don’t have any plans, but here’s some
pics of mine. I made it out a my craftsman
radial saw table I got from their recall.

Can send more in depth pics if you need me to. Those are just
ones I already have in my phone. Works great and easy to build

Randy I should have known to look for the Wood Wisperer, thanks for posting

Andy, are those marks every 3/4” for the bit? how do you hold the workpiece in there?

Double sided tape and/or shims. Yes the lines I drew every 3/4
then overlap the lines every pass. Seems to work good. Can’t wait till
I get a good router bit though.
