For a couple of days I have been hanging out ( loitering) at the Menards near here, It is closing, they are tearing it down and putting up a new one to open next March. Anyway I saw a pallet of wood, all 4 feet long, some 4 inches wide, 6 inches wide, and 8 inches wide and 3/4 inches thick. 2X6s a couple panel peices, and some siding. I have a set of projects I would like to do, so talked to the wife, I know she thought well for $125 he won’t want anymore wood money for a few months. So I went and got it toady before work. ( by the way she didn’t bite on the PC 690lr router for $100, or the Panel raising bits of $60) I would like to start by telling you all that a PT Cruiser is a terrible woodworker car. You can not fit any sheet goods in it, anything over 8’2” must be cutand there just isn’t a lot of room, for stuff, like dust collectors, and trees.Anyway 2 of the menards guys helped me load it I was thankful. I was a little nervous driving on the highway, hoping I didn’t need to slam on the breaks, or get rear ended. All the wood would have nailed me in the back of the head. Then an even scarier thought came to mind, a flat tire, I would have had to unload just to get to the jack. then reload again. Anyway, I am happy and it will make lots (at least 4) outdoor benchs sometime in April I will get to that.
Thanks for looking.
