Picket Planters (Part 3)

As I’m sure you’ve guessed simply from reading the title of this post, the third instalment of the Picket Planters series is now live on YouTube. Now, it’s time to get busy doing some “more interesting” work on this project. You get to see the jigs I made to do the round-topping and how the Supertuff blades from Tuff Saws perform.

In retrospect, I do wish I’d filmed a longer scene for each of the two round-topping sections (that’s the pickets and also the posts). I can see now how it might appear to be quite ‘short-lived’, with only one cut recorded for each operation. It comes across as very brief, in contrast to the rest of the video, I think. Especially when I wanted this to be the main focal point of this episode… 🙄

We live and learn and learn is always the latter! Winking smile

Part 4, once it’s ready, will show you how I came to assemble these planters – and, with the larger one of the two in particular, it wasn’t easy with the low roof I fitted earlier this year!

Thanks for watching!
