This build thread made a while ago started with a live edge. Check it out.


Here's what I did. There are many ways to do it though, and I've only done a live edge once.

I used a cheap chisel to scrape off the bark. I had to wear a respirator as the stuff in the bark drove my allergies wild, just a heads up. Then I used my ROS with 80 grit to get rid of what was left over. Note that I used the existing bark line and sapwood line as a guide. You can do a little re-shaping at this point. Then I hand planed one side "flat enough" to skip plane it in my planer.

Let us know how you do.

Oh, I should also say that some people have good luck using a "flap wheel" to sand down the edge, but the way I did it, I didn't have to buy anything.
