I got a new powertool – and put it to good use straight away

Rosie bought me a new powertool recently – a planer thicknesser – and it has served me very well on many projects thus far in my wood shop.

A planer thicknesser is almost an essential powertool if, like me, you want to use scrap wood such as pallets.

Aside from saws and sanders, this planer thicknesser is one of the most used power tools in my shop.

And, this particular planer thicknesser was very cheap, relatively speaking – as befits a philosophy of make-n-do with cheap-ass tools and materials.



This video is part of my new personal vlog series from the editor’s wood shed called Make-n-Do – making do with limited, cheap or even free tools and materials, and because I just like making and doing stuff in my shed – especially during COVID-19 lockdown, which, for me, was a very enjoyable period of “compulsory hobby with no guilt” 😉

This series won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I’m doing it anyway, because I want to make-n-do it for me – AND, because it could maybe just possibly help steer CONTACT into something bigger and better???

But, I can’t talk about that just yet 😉
