I spent this past week with my dad who was in town for a visit. I wasn’t sure if I would have time to make a video, but decided the two of us could put something together. This is a simple picture frame made with pallet wood. No miter cuts or exact measuring needed!

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.
