    GOOD PEOPLE!! Before blasting me for letting the lad sand without a face mask, please note at 3:03 and beyond that there is a box fan to his left blowing at full blast actively carrying the dust away from him. It's true it would be more protection for him to have on a mask and I've since invested in some for him.

      @eddie julian He's your son is as valid in this case as it is if you are letting your 5 year old smoke cancer sticks and ride without seatbelts while driving 100 MPH.

      @Willy Luedtke Iron (steel wool is quicker) and acetic acid make iron acetate which are used for ebonizing wood. The more tannin in the wood the darker it gets. You can paint the wood with tea to add tannin to a low tannin wood to make it darker.

      @Canuck A lung full of sawdust is worse than smoking. My 5 year old has her own 3m respirator. The small softer silicone model seals well.

    Those few introductory words reflect my current feelings. After some searching I found a few palettes but the material is not what it used to be and I'm fighting with myself whether to invest the time and effort or just buy new material.

    The trick to busting up those pallets with thin boards is to use a mallet and a 2x4 laid across. I hardly ever split them out that way. Great work!

    Could have used a straight piece of wood to act as a fence for a circular saw to go straight across the ends

    Should have put varnish on the table as the first wet drink will leave an unrepairable stain.
    Sad because for 27 dollars of material and 300 of labor it's a nice table.

    It's really not hard to break down pallets. A whole evening? I broke down 250 pallets, nails included, in roughly 4.5 hours. There is a fantastic tool you can buy from ebay. Just google pallet break down tool. It's a fork like design.

    a good design, however i would use some screws and dowels for more structural integrity

    Hey! THAT'S not how an anvil is supposed tobe used! LOL...I used to get my little buddy involved in all my projects too..great job! I agree with the cedar, nice stuff. Here in Colorado we now have the beetle kill pine that has been milled down into trim, siding etc. It takes some finesse to finish it. The blue in it seems to smear if a brushed on finish is applied. Nice project, I'm sure the project would've been much more difficult had your son not been there to save the day!!

    I agree, to recycle a pallet is a lot of work. The table turned out nice. I am glad that you have a helper.

    Hi, possibly a dumb question but are fence pickets dried there or wet sawn? In Australia most are still wet so would need to be dried first. Any tips for that side of things?

    Wolf spider or not I would have got the shotgun out of the gun vault for some early pest control and then burned down the house just to make sure it was dead. Did you see the size of that thing! You just can't unsee something like that.

    I would just use a nail punch and hammered the nail of right through the face of the board. You would end up with some easily patchable nail holes in your material but at least you wouldn't have to pry anything apart.

    Nice table but you have to remove everything off the top to access the storage.A drawer would have been more practical,

    Great idea. It turned out looking real nice. Also, I love the softer music. Some people think they have to blast loud music on RU-clip videos. Thanks for the softer touch. What's the name of the music?

    • Zack Of All Trades
      Zack Of All Trades  3 months ago

      Hi David, it can be a real delicate balance pairing music with RU-clip videos and it’s easy to miss the mark. Some folks just have a knack for it while others don’t. I’m somewhere in the middle, sometimes I get it right and sometimes not so much! The music in this video is Jacques Offenbach’s Can-can from the 1850’s

    But, on the whole," continues our eloquent Professor, "Man is a Tool-using Animal (Handthierendes Thier). Weak in himself, and of small stature, he stands on a basis, at most for the flattest-soled, of some half-square foot, insecurely enough; has to straddle out his legs, lest the very wind supplant him. Feeblest of bipeds!... Nevertheless he can use Tools, can devise Tools: with these the granite mountain melts into light dust before him; he kneads glowing iron, as if it were soft paste; seas are his smooth highway, winds and fire his unwearying steeds. Nowhere do you find him without Tools; without Tools he is nothing, with Tools he is all.
