I built a sled for flattening slabs too wide for my 6” jointer. I put it on a pair of horses. One important step is to place a level on the sled over each horse and shim as needed to ensure you don’t plane a twist into your slab. Then shim the slab to make sure it’s stable during the routing process. I’ve had great success with this setup so far.
