    Thanks Guys ! I went overboard ;em It started out as a 4ft by 6ft bench but I cant ever stop once I get started soooo. It evolved into 4ft by 12 ft bench and I added a top shelf as well as a lower shelf ;lol. All the lumber is out of pallets of course.

    You bet Dennis I have some more hard wood pallets at work too ! Building that bench was fun I'd love to do it again.


    Sorry Andrew Canada is a bit far for me to go right now !

    While we are on the subject of repurpose pallets.......I framed and made the trusses for my WHOLE BARN out of pallets and skid wood. My neighbor, out the street, does sign and awning installations. A number of years back, he helped install the new scoreboard and jumbotrons over at Penn State University, in Beaver Stadium. He ended up with around 3 tractor-trailer loads of skidwood (mostly 2x4's and 2x6's, lots of it was 12 to 16' long! I got a huge chunk of it for 100 bucks! All the planking is milled hemlock from my buddy........ Years later, he did the scoreboard at Rec Hall, and I got around 110-12' 2x4's for 25 bucks! I used that stuff, with leftovers from the barn framing, to help frame the interior walls in my house addition! All of it was nice, straight white pine!

    Yep, I scored a 12' mahogany pallet a few weeks ago at work. I started making a wood storage box for next to the stove to replace the 5 gallon bucket, but the plan shifted gears upon acquiring a discarded piece of oak furniture that had potential. Thread to come soon.

    Pete, you need to step back and reconsider. Using screws may just require you to change your handle.==c

    Awesome Pete. Really awesome. You have sparked me to think of a few projects that I want to do with the free pallets I collect to store my wood on. Thanks man! Nice work!
