Pallet Wood EVERYWHERE!

I’ve been collecting pallet wood all Winter and now my workshop is overflowing with pallet wood.  I’ve broken them down and have taken to storing them in every nook and cranny I can find (or make).  I can’t see my floor and the ceiling of my little 12′ x 12′ barn is FULL!

That said, I now have a nice mix of flat boards in various widths and lengths, 2′ x 4’s, plywood sheets (various grades), and and assortment of hardwoods and softwoods.  Some of it is perfectly rustic and all of it is rough.  I bought a powered hand planer to help tame them down to a nicer finish.  My next purchase will be a Thickness Planer.

Oh! I also picked up a nice, used floor-standing 14″ bandsaw from a nice carpenter on Craigslist.  I paid a great price for it, too!  I can’t wait to put it through it’s paces!

Looking around my barn I had a thought.  With all my tools and all this wood …If I can’t build something… if I can’t build SEVERAL SOMETHINGS I need to give up my hobby!
