I guess if you want a sheet thicker than a standard cutting board.

When I first posted my plan was to make sheets but now I'm making blocks for molds and other things like jigs.

These blocks are over 1" thick and I'm going to use them to make a one piece mold. Well really a block with two removable ends since this blank has a mandrel running through it.
