Sanding a tabletop (slab)

Hello all,

I have a 36x48 table top that I would like to run through a belt sander. In the past I would have taken it to the Hardwood Store of NC but they have changed their policy and will only provide sanding services for wood that was purchased at their store. On this particular project I just needed basic pine 2x12 (farm table) that I was able to get at a nearby building supply, whereas the Hardwood Store is 1 and 1/2 hours away.

That said, does anyone have any suggestion for getting a slab sanded. BTW - I am located in West End, which is very near Pinehurst.

Thank in advance,

Matt

Yes, Raleigh Reclamation is an option. I used them for a tabletop that was too big (48 x 108) for the equipment at Hardwood Store in the past but they were quite expensive.

I've bought wood from Scott in the past and it had not occurred to me to ask him about sanding. I just reached out and I'll provide an update once I hear back.
