Cool! Great start. I agree with you that pallets are a great way to get wood when money is tight. I’m always on the look out for them when I’m about town.

Great Video, amazing shop! I really like the little jigs you use for repeatable results, especially the dowel locations. Super simple but I never thought about it. Also, I’ve never seen a horizontal drill press before. looks handy. Can’t wait for Part 2.

Questions: Is the purpose of the countersink (well) to prevent glue squeeze-out? Again, basic but never thought to do that.

Hi there Blair. Yes the counter sink provides a well for the glue excess and removes any hairy bits around the edge of the hole.

Mr Gilbert. Yes we still burn pallets over here. A great source of free firewood. Best to knock them apart in winter so you get warm smashing them to bits, stacking them away and burning them. Great value..

Reallyliked the video! A horizontal drill press, improves accuracy? Pallets I’ve seen here in Southern MN not so nice. Looks like the school shop? What is your home shop like?

Nice tight clean piece.

Hey Tom,
Home shop has gear but not like in the video. Will post quick video of home when It isn’t so imbarrasingly untidy
