Help with walnut slab bench
Hello folks. I have been able to get my hands on a rather large piece of walnut that was live edge slabbed. The slab is just short of 6' long, and varies between 1-1/2" and 1-3/4" thick. I am hoping to make this slab into a bench for our farm table. The slab has a bit of a twist to it, and sitting on a flat surface, two opposing corners are in the air. I have access to a time saver drum sander, but I do not want to lose that much thickness to get it flat if I can help it.
Any ideas how to get at least one side flattened enough to attach the legs and the bench won't wobble?
