    This wood was givin to me yesterday, dont know what it was, real rough cut, 54"x11 1/2"x1 5/8", old piece, not warped, looked cool

    [​IMG]

    not big enough for a one piece so I cut it 7" wide for a two piece with a old power saw

    [​IMG]

    found an old computer desk in the corner and used a piece for a straight edge, used router to cut me a straight line

    [​IMG]

    used a 1 1/2 " bit to cut 1 5/8" , took a couple of passes but it worked

    Very informative. Those without a well equipped woodshop should pay attention to this thread. It's great to see other methods of getting the job done.
