  1. Right on. I figure with each 6x6 post I make, I save myself about $60, so about $1200 saved on the final project. Buying a $600 tool I'll only use once severely cuts into that money saved. Building long tables with a "slippery" top on each end of my existing planer is the most appealing to me at the moment.
  2. That sucker is expensive! I'm guessing something like this or a hand planer is my only option....
  3. Howdy folks! I have been using a chainsaw mill to create some 6x6 cedar posts 14' long that I intend to use to build a garage in a couple months. These posts are coming out.... well... less than perfectly square and straight. Is there a recommended method for taking off the required amount of wood to get them square and straight? I have a Dewalt planer (735x), but these posts are heavy and long, and I'm not sure if it's the right tool for the job.
