"U" is for Upgrade

I upgraded one of my most frequently used tools (and not by choice either).  Say goodbye to Mr. Husky.

And hello to Ryobi:

I know this may not be the biggest deal, a lot of people have circular saws, but it was a little scary and daunting - that blade is no joke.

Up until I made Bed #1 I had been making all my wood cuts with Mr. Husky - until he just wasn't sharp anymore.   I know it's crazy that I was using a hand saw but it worked perfectly fine and was a great arm workout at the same time so why not?

Now I know what I was missing - the power, the efficiency - holy smokes I am in heaven!  I just made all these cuts in about 1/3 of the time it took me with the hand saw.

And look how narrow it can go - about 1/4" - crazy!

My projects will only go that much faster now, I love cutting with my Ryobi.
