Woodpeckers Basic Slab Flattening Mill

by Woodpeckers

Please note - For international order this item will incur a delivery surcharge.  Please call or email for details before placing your order. 

The growing popularity in the live edge slab table top that feature winding grains, eye-catching burls and even epoxy inlays offer some major challenges in the workshop. Overall width and tricky grain changes make the use of a jointer and thickness planer impractical if not impossible. You can use a belt sander and you will eventually end up with something that is somewhat smooth, but not even close to flat, and who wants a table that isn’t flat?

The Woodpeckers Basic Slab Flattening Mill (along with your router) lets you accurately and easily flatten oddly shaped and oversized slabs right in your own shop. Since you’re using a router instead of a planer-style cutter-head, tear-out is reduced and the surface will only need lighter sanding afterwards. 

Woodpeckers Basic Slab Flattening Mill can be mounted to any flat and level work surface in just a few minutes, even to a simple sheet of MDF. With this setup, you can easily flatten slabs up to 965mm (38”) wide by 1448mm (57”) long. 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 comes with all the hardware you need to mount it to your workbench or a sheet of plywood. You’ll also get 4 Slab Clamping Dogs that keep the workpiece firmly in place.

The Slab Flattening Mill works best with a router of 2-1/4 HP or larger. You’ll get done in less time if you stick to larger diameter spoil board style bits.

So if you’ve been holding off tackling a live edge slab project because of all the challenges, you just ran out of excuses.

Quality Kit

I have seen cheaper,I have built a couple,but when this arrived very well packed I was looking forward to its’ assembly.
Impressed with the quality of the heavy,well finished components and extrusions,everything fitted together well and aligned easily.
Well printed and laid out documentation helped but everything was intuitive anyway.Very pleased with the company and its’ products.

Best bit of kit this year.

Great bit of kit, saves hours of sanding or planning. Struggled in the past with getting table tops etc dead flat even with a machine sander but this is great it can be a little messy even with the Festool router with hover so plan for that as its worth it. Built it in an hour or so, stores away easy and quick to set back up when needed.

Router plaining jig

Very well made, makes plaining large pieces of wood with a router much easier and more accurate than with cobbled together jigs I have made. WWW have been excellent too.
