We had a fairly mild winter so far as snow depth is concerned. Nowhere near the brutal amount that northern New Brunswick got. The lack of snow though has meant that with the cold air, the frost has gone deep into the ground. Which is ok if you are walking and driving machines over the ground but eventually the frost has to leave and it ill make for a soppy, wet mess to deal with. This year’s to do list will involve a lot of water course management.
Having previously slabbed the trees to make the rough stock lumber, today I squared the boards on the jointer and tablesaw, making the final passes through the planer.
I need eleven pieces of 2×4 for an upcoming project.
Do boards slide around when you load them in your truck or car and it’s a pain to tie them in a bundle? Get a roll of stretch film (available at the tape department of most lumberyards) and wrap the boards together. It’s great for bundling dowels, molding, and other thin pieces too!
