You can really tell he is your dad… You both have the same number of fingers. :-)

That was fun to watch and a great project. Thanks for sharing!

Are you reusing the nails from the pallets?

Nice to work with your dad I’m sure. He is funny. I see you’ve found more of those drywall nails for this project too.
