Hi all. Looking to start my table project. Got a nice slab of Walnut. I am looking to start evening out the surface. However, I am unsure of the right approach. I have seen alot of folks posting videos in regards to using router sled jigs. I guess my one concern or question is. Should I take this approach as my slab of wood has some nice sized knots in it? Given I have not attempted this before I was just wondering if there was a better tool for the job here. My main concern is the router skipping or kicking once I hit the knot. Or is this the generally preferred method and you need to just go extra slow over the knot areas / expect some kick or skipping.
