    Floor jack seems safer. Came out no problem.

    Watching people jack things up in unstable ways makes me very anxious. Have a relative that nearly lost his eye doing that when the jack slipped and smacked him.

    Jackall/farmers jack is preferable to floor jack. Ask your neighborhood 4x4 /jeep freak to borrow theirs

    Got all the posts in on Friday. Today was the day to start building panels.

    Spent the day trying to figure out a workflow. I also had to rebuild the last white panel of the neighbours fence. There was an agreement between the previous owner of my house and the previous owner of the neighbourís where they swapped some land with a caveat on title. Us new owners decided to get rid of it.

    Decided to go with pocket holes to attach the rails, cause why not. Haha.

    This is my ghetto mitre work station cause I canít justify getting a Mitre saw stand. A couple of 2X10s on saw horses. The irony is that with the price of lumber, Iím spent 80% of the price of the actual stand.

    Partly done on the other side. I’ll likely do the full fortress setup with the top rail and the 1X4 fake rails on the inside.

    Great job on the fence, it looks to be the equivalent quality as @gpomp built in cabinets in his living room.

    Did you let the fence boards dry before installing? I find that fence boards are always soaking wet when you buy them so I started laying them all out for at least a week to let them shrink before installing. Enables more privacy and minimal gaps between boards.
    I like neat cars.

    A+ cabinet rip-off joke. Apparently I’ve given you too much rep already.

    Playing with my 40V Worx leaf blower.
    Thing is super powerful and lightweight. Just a bit loud.
