I make a Router Sled Wood Planer, to flatten the top of logs I had ripped lengthwise in half freehand with a chainsaw. If you don’t have a jointer or a planer and you need to flatten large wood slabs or difficult to flatten lumber or logs, building a simple DIY router sled could be the answer.
A router is bolted to a sled that rides along two parallel rails that are attached to the sides of the frame with clamps, I have made this wood router planer sled from materials I had in the workshop. Cheap and simple!
This router jig worked very well for me, and I am looking forward to flattening some large wood slabs, and workbench tops, It is easy to move and set up I think it is going to get used quite a bit in the future.
I am using a 1/2″ Shank 2-1/4″ Diameter Bottom Cleaning Router Bit to flatten this lumber.
NOTE, The Rustic table video I mention in this video has not been uploaded as yet. I am still building the table and will get the video up as soon as I can. Thank you. (If you are not a subscriber and want to know when I upload it, write TABLE in the comments and I will send you a link to the video as a reply when I get it finished.)
