So… I’ve had my planer for about a month or so now. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!! And I just got another load of great recycled wood. These are boards from pallets. But… they aren’t the pallets that you typically think of. These are from a large factory that ships in very large items and materials. So these are not what I generally think of when I think of a pallet boards.
Here’s my latest load.
These are some nice boards. They have already been disassembled and there are no nails in them.
SO…. I’ve been planing things down and feeling pretty good about it. Wondering if there are some tips you guys want to pass along that I may not have thought of. Or that I just haven’t come across yet.
Someone also mentioned planing down board but not to the exact thickness. Leaving them sit and get adjusted to the environment for a few days and then when ready to build, then plane them down to the exact thickness you want.
Any other things you can think of? Storing wood you’ve planed? Affects of climate (it’s been raining all day today). Ways to avoid snipe? Anything you can think of no matter how insignificant it may seem to you… pleae share it. You never know when someone hasn’t thought of that. Especially me :) I’ve only been woodworking for less than a year. So I need all the help I can get.
