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!

Another great video. Awesome guest appearance too.
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.
