9 Foot Oak Threshold

I was asked to make an oak threshold to transition from a new tile floor to an existing oak floor. I knew how to make the jig to create the bevel on a planer but this is the first time for me doing it. The jig took about an hour to design and build. I had to send the oak through the planer 10 times to remove the material.

why didn’t you just cut the bevel on the table saw and then run it through the jointer to clean it up? just curious.

I don’t think I could have handled a 9’ board very well on a table saw.

Yes, Rod, that is a Shopsmith planer. It did a great job on the bevel.
