Yeah we keep my dad busy with requests. I hope to be as good as him and my grandfather at woodworking sometime. I am currently working on a toybox for my son that looks like a child's letter block. I have more ideas than time though so it takes me a while to get through some projects. I will need to post some pics of my work someday.

I picked up a new toy that should help further my adventure in wood working.

I bought a surface planer yesterday, now I need to find a hardwood dealer.

Yeah but I am hoping to offset that cost by buying rough sawn lumber and not the S4S stuff from Lowes.

3,990 pretty pennies...plus tax! You'd have to buy a LOT of rough lumber for it to pay for itself, but it's not all about profit when it's a hobby you enjoy. If it were all about profit in our hobbies, would any of us have garden tractors? Enjoy it Chuck! (and keep them fingers outta there!)

I plan on buying a lot of rough lumber (over a long time period), Also I feel like this was something I need to help move my wood working to the next level.

Enjoy it well, Chuck! There's been times I would have loved one of those. Not much woodworking goes on around here any more.

The planer works great, it is fun to feed the boards in.

here are 2 walnut boards that I milled down to 1/2" thick to start building a knife block. These boards came from my grandma. My grandpa cut down the walnut tree and had it sawed.

Chuck, you're forgetting another savings. You'll never have to buy oil dry again, those shavings work great.

Nice piece of equipment.

Sounds like a project coming up. Go for it, Chuck! Nice looking boards. Might want to think about a second set of knives, so you always have a sharp set ready!

The knives are reversible, but once I flip them I will get a 2nd set to have on hand. I've read where people have gotten very long life from just one side.

Do you have anyone local to sharpen the blades when needed? If not, you can send them off to have done.
