What little slab work I have done has greatly benefited from using a 5 or
5-1/2 diagonally, alternating diagonals. I’ve used my winding sticks and a
longer straightedge to figure out the highpoints, remove them, and repeats.
( I have a friend who built a router device for this, kills me to see his
FB feed). The extra mass if the -1/2 is a nice touch. A big wooden plane
could be used as well.
