I haven’t put out a YouTube video in a couple of months, but I have been busy. In this video I talk a little about the recent projects I’ve done and the fence I just got done building. I also talk a little more about my new DeWalt DW732 Planer.

Watch the video here:

Well, new planer… nice. I’ve got that one. You won’t be disappointed. Messy shop after cleaning… we all know about that. But.. the fence came out vey nice. If the door doesn’t look like it’s sagging just take an 1/8” off the bottom. Good work!

Great planer, I was very fortunate for the price I got it at, has been very handy

Thanks for the comments.

Craftsman: I already shaved some off of the bottom. The problem is that the cement is so much higher than the level of the grass. I think the main thing is that I built the Z frame backwards and the gate is now sagging a bit. I plan on propping the gate up and adding some supports to jake it an X frame, as was suggested by another LJ.

Norm: I’m looking forward to putting it to use!
