I think my wife is finally getting into my woodworking. A few weeks back we were in Lowe’s and she told me that I needed to tell her what I wanted for my birthday. We happen to be in the power tool section at the time. Kidding her I said, “oh you can get me one these Dewalt Planers.” She said ok and I thought no more about it, until her text this morning which said, “I’m going to lunch. Thought I’d run to Lowe’s and buy your birthday present.” She’s purchased a few smaller items for me in the past but never anything like this.
I learned an important fact through it all. She IS listening when I talk about the tools I need. She had heard me talking many times about how useful a good planer would be.
The Dwalt DW735 was the one benchtop planer I was impressed with. Having it will allow me to buy lots of rough lumber which is generally a huge savings compared to prepared lumber.
Word to self. Talk a lot about tools needed next year in months leading up to birthday. Perseverance!
Now to build a planer table.
