Rout-N-Plane Bench Top Board Mill

 Woodpeckers Rout-N-Plane and Rout-N-Plane XL Bench Top Board Mills takles two jobs your thickness planer can't...end-grain cutting boards and glued-up panels wider than your planer. Both work with stock from 3/4" to 3" thick. Original Rout-N-Plane will handle 15" wide material with most routers, except the ones with larger bases will have slightly less capacity. The XL model takes that up to 24". Just fix your cutting board to a flat table, adjust the Rout-N- Plane height just above the board and set your router depth of cut to shave a little off the top. In minutes you'll have a flat board ready for finish sanding.

From Trimmers to 3HP routers...Rout-N-Plane works with them all!

End grain cutting boards stand up to heavy work in the kitchen better than edge grain or face grain boards. Leveling an end grain board should never be done on a jointer or thickness planer. It's not only ineffective, it's potentially dangerous. Levelling them with a router sled isn't a new idea, but the Rout-N-Plane offers convenience and flexibility you can't get with shop-built sleds. Rout-N-Plane adjusts in seconds to safely guide any router across your board. It adjusts for board thicknesses from 3/4" to a full 3". Original Rout-N-Plane handles boards up to 15" wide (based on a 6" diameter base with a 1" diameter cutter). Rout-N-Plane XL bumps that up to 24", length is only limited by how much table you have. Original Rout-N-Plane works on tables at least 22-1/2" wide. Rout-N-Plane XL needs at least 32".

Adjusting the height of Rout-N-Plane couldn't be simpler. Just find the tab setting on the ends that puts the router support just above your board and spin in the locking knobs. The powder-coat finish slides easily across benchtop surfaces and provides a low-friction surface for your router base. A centering guide is provided to properly set the router edge guides and a sacrificial fence is provided to keep Rout-N-Plane square to your project.

While the main focus is end grain cutting boards the Rout-N-Plane can handle projects such as workbenches, river tables or live-edge slabs, where a 12" planer couldn't.

Like all Woodpeckers products, Rout-N-Plane and Rout-N-Plane XL are precisely machined and carefully inspected in their Strongsville, Ohio factory, just south of Cleveland.
