No time Dom
I had that meeting and quickly cut the face of that maple piece.
Then I had to clean up the carnage.
Dom and I were talking of ways to improve this process. The stability of a steel frame would be nice for a flatter run across the surface. Also we were using a 1.25" wide bit, and the availability of a 3" is out there.
That could speed up the process. Then again, how often would someone do this kind of work? It's a unique process that might normally be done with a planer. Problem here was a planer would probably tear the grain out of a burled surface, so that option was abandoned right away.
Where Dom came up with this idea is beyond me and a brilliant option. It's like owning a cheap planer that can be adjusted to handle any width or thickness.
