With a long Winter to stock up on pallet wood, I REALLY need to put them to use. The problem? The best of the wood is pretty rough and will take hundreds of man hours to make usable. And since I only have evenings and weekends, I’ll never get anything built in the meantime.
Unless, I spend some money I saved on wood… for a tool that speeds up the process.
TADA! Enter the Dewalt 15-amp, 3-blade Planer! This thing is a beast! And I only cut myself twice setting it up!!
While I was at Lowes, I picked up a Porter Cable 20v Lithium cordless drill and 6.5″ table saw combo. They were less a need… But they are cool! I already had a couple of Porter Cable drills (impact and standard) but was always wishing I had an extra. The circular saw was something I wanted to not have to drag out the heavy circular saw, long extension cord and set the whole thing up — only to take it all down again for only a few minutes worth of work cutting up scrap wood around the fire pit.
