  • Walnut end table


    Finally got around to flattening some slabs. I sawmilled these from a large limb that fell at my son's house. Used a whiteside 4 wing spoil board bit about 1/8 inch per pass a little lite sanding and they were ready for finish.

    The wood, design and execution are all really nice. I use my machine often to flatten slabs and tops. I have found that 300 or so ipm with a 2" cutter with carbide cutters does a nice job (50%) stepover. I adjust the rpm until it sounds/looks good.

        Really wonderful use of that slab and great waterfall joinery.

          Outstanding work. One of the reasons I purchased my Stinger was to flatten slabs for furniture. I had a nice black walnut slab that I wanted for a bench but my when my Stinger was delivered first time I had to send back for shipping damage. I decided to use my 22-44 Jet drum sander to flatten since on side was flat. It took a long time and since it was curved I had to make a jig to go into the drum sander at the right angle each pass. I attached pics but I think they pale in comparison to what G Hussey created. The legs are cherry wood. FWIW

            Thanks guys. I've had those slabs laying around for several years could not come up with an idea for legs to make a table so I just squared the ends and mitered them at a 45. Was not sure how it would look but went for the waterfall look turned out good since the grain matched.
            Ray don't think I can run that fast only have a 3.5 hp router stalled it the first time I tried so slowed it down to 100.
            Keith I have the same drum sander you did a good job flattening that slab nice looking bench.

              I'm sorry....I should have specified that I am only taking off .03" a pass. For me that seems to be the magic combination to minimize tearout and the sometimes burn.
