Re: wooden slab flattening

By large slabs....I am thinking something like a dining table. Personally i wouldnt use a handheld power planer to flatten boards. Their sole isnt long enough. No.7 hand plane to get it flat and level then a jack plane and/or sander to smooth.

Re: Anybody know the current price of walnut (roughly) ?

Having never worked with it before, I dont really know what this 'sap wood' stuff is thats within it. Is this totally unusable/unwanted/unworkable timber.....or just a minor asthetic deviation in the grain?

£250 is not even enough to get a half decent table.........nevermind a table-saw. I have a 30yr old 3hp Luna. Very well engineered and once I cleaned it up and its an absolute animal and a joy to use.
