I like working with hand tools much better, as it’s what I’ve always done…however I recently took some lumber over to a friend’s house to run through his powered planer, and while it is loud & messy, it saved me many hours of work…I could get spoiled by that thing.

I would like to build a workbench, and the thought of all the hand-planing to make a glued-up top out of 12-15 boards makes me most likely to solicit some jointer and planer help from that friend again.

-- I'm strictly hand-tool only...unless the power tool is faster and easier!
