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!
