Neighbors to the Rescue

Once again, the Neumanskys came to our rescue. This afternoon we scampered down the block to borrow a planer from their tool stash.

About half an hour later, our 4x6es were 3.5x6es.

Planing the 4x6es

Tomorrow I'll re-stain the planed sides, and then we can put the main frame of the pergola together. We still have to make the small cross-pieces and then stain them.

I'm guessing we should buy one of these guys; it was a very handy item.
