‘Planing’ oak on the cnc router

This piece of oak I need to be parallel to the machine before doing more work on it.

Using a 60mm spoilboard cutter to ‘plane’ it. Before having this mill I used a 16mm mill, the time saving with this bigger mill is substantial.

The router is only capable of 1.5m/min at the moment, faster feed rate would be beneficial for this sort of cutting.

The 2.2 kw spindle has only ‘just’ about enough torque to make this work in oak using a small cutting depth.

Resulting flatness is very good. Only some light sanding required to remove the toolmarks.
