Is anyone here willing and able to do wide belt sanding on a live edge, epoxy filled table top up to 36 inches wide? Thanks!
Something like this...

Good luck with your search! If you come up empty I recommend a card scraper for epoxy rather than sanding.
Its quicker and the little mini shavings are much easier to deal with than epoxy sanding dust. The surface ends up glass smooth.

It may seem intimidating but I've done much larger surfaces than your project. ( no- I'm not volunteering!)

As a question, not a suggestion, would a scraper plane work for this or would the sole of the plane cause issues with the epoxy?

Never tried it, but seems like it would work. I'm typically working on compound surfaces, so haven't had the opportunity to try.

Thompson's Mill Works (formerly Garland Woodcraft) in Durham has done wide sanding for me. I think their unit sands 36"max.
