How my thinking works...

I was in Lowes looking for a piece of wood to build a spice rack.   

A small rack,  just enough room for the spices I like to grab when I'm cooking.



I found the wood I wanted, it was being sold as lattice. 
$7+ for an eight foot long piece of inch and a half by 1/8th".  
Wow, spendy I thought...




As I was heading towards the check out stand I walked by the dimensional lumber. An eight foot long select 2x6 is only $6. 




Hmmm...

That got me thinking about the really nice Delta table saw I walked by on my way to the wood...





With that $600 table saw I could cut a lot of 1/8th" strips out of a $6 piece of wood even with a 1/8th" blade kerf!  


Hmmm.. a $600 table saw will save me a bunch if I need lattice. 

Of course then I'd need a place to keep the table saw...  
Lowes sells sheds!



With my thinking this is all reasonable!


In the end I bought the piece of lattice.
