If you don’t have the space or the budget for a one-ton jointer in your shop , but you still want flat boards up to 16″ wide, the Board Mill is for you. Establishing a flat face and straight, square edge is challenging on wider boards. How do you flatten a 12″ or 15″ wide board when you have a 6″ or 8″ jointer? Even within the capacity of your jointer, wide boards can be difficult to handle, particularly when it’s 1-1/2″ thick white oak, rock maple or other gnarly hardwood. Woodpeckers has taken a different approach to milling the first face and edge – instead of wrestling your board across a jointer (that you probably don’t have), keep the board stationary and move the cutter.
