    Router Sled for flattening large slabs

    This was a router sled we built for flattening large slabs.

    We can do up to 6' wide and 12' long in this configuration.

    Changes the labour involved from hours to minutes.

    Hope you like it!

    You are about a quarter of the way to a CNC router��

    Yea, we have a Shapeoko XXL, this was purpose built to do huge slabs though. We have leveled slabs that were too big for the joiner with the CNC but it is painfully slow and that machine is more profitable when it is cutting or laser etching than it is when leveling. We HAVE discussed making this semi-automated, but those plans are still a ways from becoming reality.
