I got a slab of an old bowling ally that I am going to use as a top for a bench I am making. The underside of it was not even in any way so I had to build a jig to flatten it. It worked wonderfully. I used pocket holes to put it together. I can add on to it if I need it for bigger projects and take it apart for storing it. I will post pictures of the bench build soon.

Nice work, simple jig that looks like it does the job just fine.
Looking forward to seeing the bench.

Good job. You got a good lane section. Most of the one’s I have seen were a laminated deal, with more nails than you can count.

Thanks for posting.

A nice jig that is indispensable if you are working with odd shaped stuff.
