I have a piece of 4x4 with a very uneven cut at the end, and I want to make this end nice and flat.
However, I am puzzled that there seem to be no popular tools for flat wood grinding. Sanding seems to be the obvious choice - but what if we need to grind down as much as 1/4" of wood, or more? I have a small Black&Decker sander, and while it works well making smooths surfaces, I'm afraid it's going to take me quite a while to sand away all that extra wood.
I also have an angle grinder, and while I initially thought that this should be an ideal tool for wood flattening, I'm surprised with the dearth of appropriate blades.
I've seen only a few blades on internet that seem appropriate - flat disks for wood grinding (with blades, not sandpaper), but have no idea how good they would be for my purpose.
If I had a large surface to grind down, a plane would be an obvious choice, but a 4x4 end should be too small for any plane.
Or should I just arm myself with some low-grit sandpaper and patience?
An update: I ended up doing this job using a sander with 40 grit sandpaper. It took a lot of time, but came out nicely. Thanks everybody!
