« Part 7: My next toy for the shop!?!?! Part 8 of Building the Shop series Part 9: Things to come this Winter »

As many of you read in my #7 Blog I asked for some feedback on what I should get for my shop next. Everyone’s comments were helpful!!! I started looking on CL and came across a DW735 Planer for $400, these don’t pop up on CL to often in good condition, offered $375 and I had my myself a new planer for my shop. The gentlemen only used it for one small kitchen project, so it turned out to be a great deal for me.

Gotta love Craigslist! I also got one for $375 but I was lucky enough to get one in an unopened box. I was unsure at first, sounded too good to be true, but when I got there and saw the 3 other planers that were all larger, I figured it was OK. Turned out I was right and the machine is awesome!

Nice pickup! Consider adding infeed and outfeed tables. Dewalt makes some specifically for that model that fold up when not in use, or I’m sure you could build some stationary tables easily enough.

Thanks everyone!

I’m thinking it’s time to start buying some sheet of maple ply and start knocking out some shop furniture. It’s starting to cool off a little so I’m thinking come Sept. I’ll be ready. I need a table on casters for the Planer now, I want to build the Ultimate Miter Station with the Kreg syetem, and I want to build the Wood Whisperers assembly table but put it on casters and use it as an out feed table.

I might pick up the Ridgid Trim Nailer Kit w/ the 18 and headless 23 gauge before I start build shop furniture.

Keep watching!! More tools to come!
