{"id":4338174722117,"title":"Slab Flattening Mill","handle":"slabflatteningmill","description":"\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #363636; font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif; font-size: 14px;\"\u003eThe hottest trend in interior design these days is live edge slab table tops. And, why not? The natural curves of the trunk give an organic feel. The crazy grain patterns in crotches and burls are eye-catching.  Even cracks that would have sent lumber to the burn pile just a few years ago are being controlled and enhanced with butterfly patches and epoxy inlays. However, slabs present some challenges in the shop. Overall width and weird grain changes make the use of a jointer and thickness planer impractical if not impossible. Woodpeckers new Slab Flattening Mill makes it simple to use your router to flatten and thickness slabs right in your own shop faster and easier than you ever thought possible.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch1 dir=\"ltr\" style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px 0px 0.7em; padding: 0px; font-size: 28px; font-weight: 400; color: #363636; font-family: Oswald, sans-serif; line-height: 1.2; text-rendering: optimizelegibility; text-transform: uppercase;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003eSLAB FLATTENING MILL\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h1\u003e\n\u003cp dir=\"ltr\" style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; color: #363636; font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif; font-size: 14px;\"\u003e\u003cstrong style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003eWoodpeckers Slab Flattening Mill\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003e guides your router over your slab in a controlled plane. Since you’re using a router instead of a planer-style cutterhead, tear-out is minimal…the surface will only need light sanding afterwards. The Slab Flattening Mill starts with two aluminum extrusions. The inverted “V” shape of these main rails sheds sawdust and provides a solid base for the mating extrusion. The second extrusion fits over the inverted “V” and glides on UHMW polyethylene runners. Simply mount the mill to any flat and level work surface…even a sheet of MDF on a pair of sawhorses. When you’re done, the modular design stores conveniently.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp dir=\"ltr\" style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; color: #363636; font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif; font-size: 14px;\"\u003e\u003cstrong style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003eWoodpeckers now offer\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003e\u003cstrong style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003e the Slab Flattening Mill in 4 sizes\u003c\/strong\u003e to accommodate the needs of every slab woodworker. If you’re tight on shop space and are planning to do end-grain cutting boards and end table sized slabs, our smallest Slab Flattening Mill will handle work up to 24\" x 24\". If you need more length, there’s the 24\" x 48\". The Basic Slab Flattening Mill accommodates slabs up to 38” x 57”. The Extended Slab Flattening Mill adds an additional pair of 72\" rails that can either replace the cross rails to increase width, or connect with the base rails to extend length. The capacity grows to either 62” x 105” or 38” x 129”. These huge capacities are great…when you need them. Remember, though, you can always mount the rails closer together when it suits your project. See the chart in the photos for a guide to all the maximum size configurations.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp dir=\"ltr\" style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; color: #363636; font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif; font-size: 14px;\"\u003e\u003cstrong style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003eUsing the Slab Flattening\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003e\u003cstrong style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003e Mill\u003c\/strong\u003e is as easy as sliding your router across the slab and back, moving over a little less than the width of your cutter and repeating until you’re done.

style=\"color: #363636; font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif; font-size: 14px;\"\u003eThe hottest trend in interior design these days is live edge slab table tops. And, why not? The natural curves of the trunk give an organic feel. The crazy grain patterns in crotches and burls are eye-catching.  Even cracks that would have sent lumber to the burn pile just a few years ago are being controlled and enhanced with butterfly patches and epoxy inlays. However, slabs present some challenges in the shop. Overall width and weird grain changes make the use of a jointer and thickness planer impractical if not impossible. Woodpeckers new Slab Flattening Mill makes it simple to use your router to flatten and thickness slabs right in your own shop faster and easier than you ever thought possible.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch1 dir=\"ltr\" style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px 0px 0.7em; padding: 0px; font-size: 28px; font-weight: 400; color: #363636; font-family: Oswald, sans-serif; line-height: 1.2; text-rendering: optimizelegibility; text-transform: uppercase;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003eSLAB FLATTENING MILL\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h1\u003e\n\u003cp dir=\"ltr\" style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; color: #363636; font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif; font-size: 14px;\"\u003e\u003cstrong style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003eWoodpeckers Slab Flattening Mill\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003e guides your router over your slab in a controlled plane. Since you’re using a router instead of a planer-style cutterhead, tear-out is minimal…the surface will only need light sanding afterwards. The Slab Flattening Mill starts with two aluminum extrusions. The inverted “V” shape of these main rails sheds sawdust and provides a solid base for the mating extrusion. The second extrusion fits over the inverted “V” and glides on UHMW polyethylene runners. Simply mount the mill to any flat and level work surface…even a sheet of MDF on a pair of sawhorses. When you’re done, the modular design stores conveniently.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp dir=\"ltr\" style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; color: #363636; font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif; font-size: 14px;\"\u003e\u003cstrong style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003eWoodpeckers now offer\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003e\u003cstrong style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003e the Slab Flattening Mill in 4 sizes\u003c\/strong\u003e to accommodate the needs of every slab woodworker. If you’re tight on shop space and are planning to do end-grain cutting boards and end table sized slabs, our smallest Slab Flattening Mill will handle work up to 24\" x 24\". If you need more length, there’s the 24\" x 48\". The Basic Slab Flattening Mill accommodates slabs up to 38” x 57”. The Extended Slab Flattening Mill adds an additional pair of 72\" rails that can either replace the cross rails to increase width, or connect with the base rails to extend length. The capacity grows to either 62” x 105” or 38” x 129”. These huge capacities are great…when you need them. Remember, though, you can always mount the rails closer together when it suits your project. See the chart in the photos for a guide to all the maximum size configurations.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp dir=\"ltr\" style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; color: #363636; font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif; font-size: 14px;\"\u003e\u003cstrong style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003eUsing the Slab Flattening\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003e\u003cstrong style=\"box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;\"\u003e Mill\u003c\/strong\u003e is as easy as sliding your router across the slab and back, moving over a little less than the width of your cutter and repeating until you’re done.

Slab Flattening Mill

Product Description

The hottest trend in interior design these days is live edge slab table tops. And, why not? The natural curves of the trunk give an organic feel. The crazy grain patterns in crotches and burls are eye-catching.  Even cracks that would have sent lumber to the burn pile just a few years ago are being controlled and enhanced with butterfly patches and epoxy inlays. However, slabs present some challenges in the shop. Overall width and weird grain changes make the use of a jointer and thickness planer impractical if not impossible. Woodpeckers new Slab Flattening Mill makes it simple to use your router to flatten and thickness slabs right in your own shop faster and easier than you ever thought possible.

SLAB FLATTENING MILL

Woodpeckers Slab Flattening Mill guides your router over your slab in a controlled plane. Since you’re using a router instead of a planer-style cutterhead, tear-out is minimal…the surface will only need light sanding afterwards. The Slab Flattening Mill starts with two aluminum extrusions. The inverted “V” shape of these main rails sheds sawdust and provides a solid base for the mating extrusion. The second extrusion fits over the inverted “V” and glides on UHMW polyethylene runners. Simply mount the mill to any flat and level work surface…even a sheet of MDF on a pair of sawhorses. When you’re done, the modular design stores conveniently.

Woodpeckers now offer the Slab Flattening Mill in 4 sizes to accommodate the needs of every slab woodworker. If you’re tight on shop space and are planning to do end-grain cutting boards and end table sized slabs, our smallest Slab Flattening Mill will handle work up to 24" x 24". If you need more length, there’s the 24" x 48". The Basic Slab Flattening Mill accommodates slabs up to 38” x 57”. The Extended Slab Flattening Mill adds an additional pair of 72" rails that can either replace the cross rails to increase width, or connect with the base rails to extend length. The capacity grows to either 62” x 105” or 38” x 129”. These huge capacities are great…when you need them. Remember, though, you can always mount the rails closer together when it suits your project. See the chart in the photos for a guide to all the maximum size configurations.

Using the Slab Flattening Mill is as easy as sliding your router across the slab and back, moving over a little less than the width of your cutter and repeating until you’re done. It works best with a variable speed router of 2 horsepower or more. You’ll get done sooner if you stick to a large diameter spoil board style bit.  

This process produces lots of shavings. Our new optional dust collection port bolts to the carriage and rides along right beside the exit point of the shavings. It works with either shop vacuums or larger dust collectors. A brush surrounds the pick-up area, trapping the shavings equally well on smooth or uneven slab surfaces. Mounts to the carriage with 6 simple screws, replacing the carriage end-stops. This will retro-fit to any Woodpeckers Slab Flattening Mill, regardless of when you bought it.
