Well here in the UK wood is expensive and anyway to get good wood cheap is a bonus. I managed to get hold of some bar tables tops they are beech and ash but have been stained and have some sort of finish on them. I am currently cutting then into planks and running the through the thickneser but it really doesn’t like it and it is taking along time to process them. Anyone have any ideas on how to do this better thanks in advance

You can try and belt sand through some of the finish. Its got to be chewing up your knives.

Or try ‘shaving’ off the finish with your table saw after cutting the planks. Presuming, of course, that it’s a surface type finish and not a penetrating one.

Have your say...
