Planer with 10 inch max thickness

I love this forum. Been reading lots. This is not a today purchase but, I saw another person asking about planers and thought a new thread instead of hijacking his.

I build bee boxes. Sometimes they wind up uneven. A planer that can plane them after they are built would be awesome. So I need to have a planer that can handle 16 inches wide. So a 20 or 24 would work perfectly. But, the max thickness needs to be 10 inches. Anyone seen such an animal.

Thanks for the advice.

I think it would be more reasonable to be more cautious getting the parts cut accurately. A planer which would surface 10" would be a very large industrial machine which would be very expensive.

Another option would be to construct a router sled to mill the excess wood off. Time consuming but would work.

I reached out to Grizzly and they don't have such an animal.

Thank you for your email dated May 9, 2016.

Unfortunately, none of our planers will accommodate 10 tall objects. There are no provisions available for modifying any of our planers to increase the cutting height, and we do not custom fabricate parts. A planer may break the box apart.

If we may be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. You are a valued customer, and we look forward to serving your future woodworking and metalworking needs.

I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.
Impressive, huh?
