Howdy folks, this is a little post about what I’ve been up to lately. I was hoping to write about my blooming acting career, but alas, it is still in the bud.
Instead, I am going to write about my pallet obsession!
I work at a scary house production for five months of the year. We like to dismantle pallets and use the old wood. They are constructed of hardwood, are usually weather-worn and look good. My supervisor, Bloody Bobby, used the wood to build torture chamber racks, and I used parts to build sliding, pocket doors for my pallet maze. When I had enough trick doors, I built an over-sized bench to put on top. Pallets are built of ribs and slats. We were using the slats. There were lots of left over center ribs, so I built an over-built table exclusively of ribs. It probably weighs a hundred pounds.
This year, at the end of the season, I brought some pallets home with me. I have recently dismantled a few and built some furniture. Here is the original bench and rib table.
Then, a couple of benches, a coffee table, and a few bookshelves.
The last bookshelf features attempted representations of our fur-babies, Jesse, Kitka, and Sam. I hope to produce more stuff like this.
