This right here.

We had a 43” wide belt in the second shop I worked at and it will make you cry tears of joy. If you find a shop that will run it it will take 5 minutes to knock it down to size and another 5 if you want it finished in a finer grit. Compare this to hours of scraping. I have done that till my fingers burned. Now I know of a shop that has a wide 3 belt sander that takes off .030 in a pass starting at 80 then 120 then 220 grit. it comes out near perfect after a couple of passes.

Or find a cabinet shop with a wide belt sander.
