I need some 4" x 8" x 75" thick oak boards jointed, glued up and then planed or sanded smooth for a bench top. Final width is 26". I am located in the Independence, VA, area and am looking for doing this near the end of June. Any ideas on where I can get this done?

Why until June you might ask. I am a Dept. of Defense school teacher that goes to my mountain house during the summer. I started this project last summer, completing the base, but ran out of time when my planer broke. And my wife says I can not buy any tools (jointer in my mind) this summer, since we are transferring from Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to Misawa Air Base, Japan.

Appreciate any help.

That will be a serious bench top! A local cabinet shop should be able to run it through their wide belt sander after it is assembled for a small fee. Most of us are a fair distance south of you but I imagine you can find someone in the Mt. Airy area with a jointer and planer to help for a few frosty adult beverages.
