I had to build a picnic table for a customer. A couple of things have happened.
#1 I blew up my miter saw last weekend, so the job became instantly more difficult.
#2 I still don't have a thickness planer.
I used the circular saw for the cross cuts and my #7 Bailey for leveling out the boards on the top of the table.
The #7 was properly tuned and very sharp. I needed every bit of sharpness.
Hand planing a 6 1/2 foot picnic table is/was quite a workout.
So a shower and 4 Advil later, I am done in the shop for the day.
