Planing slats / by Scott Newland

Thanks to the woodworking tools that my multi-talented brother-in-law, John, owns, I continued the planing of the salvaged cedar fence slats that used to be in the backyard.  Before demolition last summer, I removed the entire wood fence and salvaged most of the wood.  The vertical slats were saved for reuse and, today, I did the final passes at planing one face of each slat.

The next step will be to stain each slat, trim the ends square, and install them.  For the final location on the house, stay tuned!
