I’m in the process of making some boxes. I picked up some fancy wood for doing double dovetail corners. The stock is 3/4” I need to plane it down to 3/8. I only want to plane down what I need from the 24” length I have so I need to plane down about 6” worth.
I’m considering the purchase of a thickness planer, for this and other projects.
I also thought about using my table router and just doing pass after pass over the approximately 5” x 6” piece of wood I need to get down to 3/8” inch. Thoughts?
I found a jig using a router as a planer, with the router mounted to a board with a supporting frame suspending the router over the workpiece. Makes sense that you could just use a router table instead?
Another method I found, hot glue on sacrificial strips. Thoughts?
Thanks in advance,
