Thicknessers are useful table-top machines that enable rough wood to be cut to evenly-sized planks for use in DIY and furniture making. Wooden planks of uneven size and variable finish can be passed through the thicknesser and cut down to the required depth and width. The newly cut surface of the wood is then smoother and easier to work with.
Professional & DIY Wood Treatment
A thicknesser in the workshop can save money quickly because it enables you to start with rough timber or reclaimed wood for your home renovation projects. This is much less expensive than buying prepared and pre-finished wood stock. Some further finishing with a planer may be required in some cases, and you might also consider a planer thicknesser - a more robust machine that will do both jobs.
