This probably is crazy but do they make any kind of table or bench where you
can attach an "Angle Grinder" and then you can move the piece of wood over
the grinder to remove lots of wood fast? I have had to use an angle grinder
in the past to shave down some wood quickly and man does it work well, but I
was thinking maybe I am missing the boat and that I might be able to make
the grinder stationary and move the wood across it. Sure works faster than
a belt sander....

One can always figure a way to hold it in a vise but I'm not sure why
one would do this. Seems like sawing it would be quicker and safer.
Also a stationary belt sander with something like 60 grit will make a
LOT of dust.

As I was saying, safety depends on the operator. ;-)
Buck, are you talking about using a grinding wheel on wood? I think
you're on to something, but the dust would be an issue.
Maybe, or perhaps you are one of those people who ask these questions
[at least verging on a troll] about how to use a tool in a way it was
definitely not designed for, and often as not ridiculously dangerous,
without having tried it themselves. Try it, and then let us know how
you make out.
I have used an angle grinder to remove excess wood many times and I say be
careful! It does remove wood, but it can get away from you in an eye blink.
Make sure you wood is secure, wear heavy gloves and a face shield. A heavy
apron is also a good idea as well as having some way to deal with lots of dust.
I use one to form seat bottoms for windsor chairs, takes about five minutes
with some followup sanding. Think safety! GCS
