Good Morning Readers!

Hooray! I am back from the depths of my Pallet Crafting!

This weekend I will finally complete a few projects that I want to share with all of you!

The Trials!

These past few weeks have been a test of endurance and patience. A few failed projects hit the fan, but I gained a ton of experience and knowledge from doing them! I have learned now to take more time for each cut, measuring and remeasuring before the cut line was drawn, then measuring the final cut piece. I have learned that “Good enough” should be banned from my process and that I should strive to achieve perfect cuts. I have also learned that I should not make any plan that I am not willing to change or improve upon.

Upcoming:

Sanding table top with vac connection, took this idea from Daris, a daily top three project: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/70991

Sitting Tray Chair for my baby girl who is almost old enough to start eating real food!

Wall pallet! A suggestion from my wife!

Crib Mobile! I finished this project this week and its ready for a blog entry this weekend.

I will post how I made these things and their completed project profiles soon!

Nice craative use of pallets. And you description of your work and process is very inspiring. “The word Good enough should be banned” should be instilled in everyone’s mind. And maybe even posted on the wall of your shop. Good Job !!
