Wood Planing

Yesterday was a day of learning and doing.  A friend of mine had these pieces of wood.  She wanted to plane them to take off the old stain.  

Now in all my years of helping George there were a few pieces of equipment I never operated.  This planer was one of them.  He was always the operator.  I was the one who caught the board as it came out.  

We are not however the kind of women who would let something like that keep us from trying.

So we dug out the planer and got started.  We have two other helpers here.  One is Kelly’s mom Retia who is taking the pictures for us and also helped pull the boards through and Kelly’s daughter 

who decided to rest for a few minutes.

 And here is the finished product.  I think we did a great job.  They were beautiful pieces of wood under all that yuck.  She is using them on a wall in her new house.  I can’t wait to see how they look.  

It was a fun day.  We learned something new, laughed a lot and made some new memories.  God bless.
