Plain - Plane - Planer

Knowing he had a big wood project ahead of him, Kenny received a planer for Christmas. A planer shaves off a very thin, flat layer of wood to make rough lumber even, smooth and finished. We planed the boards for the front of the stalls, so they looked uniform and smooth. This photo shows the start of the front of Reggie's stall. Kenny also sunk the 4"x4" oak posts in cement, using the same method as the poles set by Pioneer Pole Buildings when they built the barn (see post "Holey Moley"). He set the pole(s) vertical using a 4' level and anchored them to the roof trusses as well. He topped off the front stall wall with a 1"x4" cap.
