guitman32 Posted July 21, 2004 Report Share Posted July 21, 2004 I got a nice piece of mahogany the other day, only thing is its about 48 long, 7 wide, and 4 thick... Im gonna use it for the body, and therefore need to get the thickness down to 1 3/4. Is a tablesaw suitable for this job? I figure I can do it in 2 passes, flipping the board around after the first, using a featherboard to keep the piece onto the rail. This would get it to 2 thick, and from there, im not sure how to get it to the final thickness... On a little side note, I purchased a book called Router Magic, by Bill Hylton, and It has some great stuff in it...most notably of which was a plan for a surfacing baseplate. I never thought of surfacing with my router before!! Seems like an interesting idea, although highly inefficient. So maybe I can use this surfacing technique to get the thickness of my piece down to the final 1 3/4 thickness after table sawing it?
