I just purchased a home and my kids have requested a backyard playset.
I think I'm up to the task, plus it gives me a good reason to buy a
compound mitre saw! I'm hoping for advice/recommendations on three
First, I live in the midwest (humid, hot summers and cold winters), so
I'm wondering whether I'm safe using pressure-treated pine or should
spend extra for cedar?
Second, can you recommend alternate sites for playset plans besides
the standard ones sold by Lowes/Home Depot?
Third, can group members please recommend their favorite compound
mitre saw for a newbie on a budget of $300 or less? Also, will a 10"
mitre saw be enough to cut 4x4's and 4x6's, or do I need a 12" model?
