I want to make a fixture to plane wide boards and tabletops using the router. I looked at Whiteside spoilboard cutters, but they are in the neighbrhood of $300 each.

Does anyone know of any alternatives?

Do you know of any designs for a Router Gantry set-up that is not CNC? I want to manually skin cut the surface -probably in two or more passes.

I did a search on the forum and can't seem to get the info I'm looking for.

To clarify, I want to plane large boards and workbench tops (make one face flat, not thickness plane it). I don't have a jointer and the ones I want are out of my budget presently. So my thought is to build a router gantry to skim cut the board until I get a flat face. Then I can run it through my thickness planer.

I also want to be able to flatten butcher block tops, workbenches, etc. I need a way to attach a "rail system" for the router carriage to ride on without needing to screw into the sides of the boards, table tops.
