My plan is to use a 9 inch insert planner blade on the swingblade/slabber mill.  Will need to adjust the blade offset so the blade is flat.  35 hp should make quick work of the slabs.  I have a garage and barn full of slabs.  Then use the sanding pad to finish the wood off.

That would definitely be pretty slick. And make short work of it. It doesn't really take all that long with my setup but could definitely be faster.
