For about the tenth time since I built the table top I redone it, most of the time for different try  for the color. Last week, I cut  about 6 inches in the depth and today I straitghtened the top because there was some curves in it. I used a long ruler, a  plane, a scraper, a sanding belt, an orbital sander. The result is good but up to today I was stuck with the idea that only a large belt sanding panel machine could do the job. Some time it is strange how we can limit ourself.

Gaetan,

 

This certainly an amazing project. Thinking just about the same for your working corporate office headquarters ha ha 

Brilliant work indeed,

 

Cheers,

Interesting set-up, there Gaetan. Would you have better depth control with two wedges of wood, one either side of the bit?

Traveling on a straight surface yes, traveling on a curve, it is harder to be guided by both sides especially if the radius is changing but for a constant radius it could be a good thing.

I was thinking if the guides were quite close on either side of the bit, Gaetan.
