I have always had an interest in timber. I would tinker around in the shed making a few things like coffee tables, book shelves and photo frames. Then 14 years ago I bought a ‘Slab Master’ levelling machine. Long gone are the days of me attending weekend markets with 4am starts and working a full time job during the week. Now my ‘hobby has become my full time ‘job’ [of love].
The slab master is a purpose designed and built machine to level and sand timber slabs even if the slab is cupped or twisted. The end result is a slab that is level and straight ready for finishing.
Other equipment includes a 400mm wide spiral head thicknesser, laguna band saw with a rip saw king blade, table saw, routers and small band-saw mill for doing small logs up to 600mm diameter and 2-3 meters long.
