Woodpeckers Rout-N-Plane Bench Top Board Mill
Woodpeckers New Rout-N-Plane Bench Top Board Mill.
Just fix your cutting board to a flat table at least 22-1/2" wide, 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. You'll save yourself hours of belt sanding and create truer, flatter cutting boards.
End grain cutting boards stand up to heavy work in the kitchen better than edge grain or face grain boards. But leveling an end grain board should never be done on a jointer or thickness planer. It's not only ineffective, it's potentially dangerous. Leveling them with a router sled isn't exactly a new idea, but 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". It works on boards up to 15" wide (based on a 6" diameter base with a 1" diameter cutter). And length is only limited by how much table you have.
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, too. 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 we focused of end grain cutting boards when we engineered Rout-N-Plane, it turns out they're only the beginning. Think of a twisted plank wider than your jointer with grain too beautiful to cut up and glue into a panel. Fix it to a piece of MDF with shims and hotmelt glue and surface it flat with Rout-N-Plane. The same thing can be done with 15" and under natural edge slabs. If it's under 3" thick and narrower than 15", you can level it with Rout-N-Plane.
Like all Woodpeckers products, the Rout-N-Plane Bench Top Board Mill is precisely machined and carefully inspected in our Strongsville, Ohio factory (just south of Cleveland).
