Hello Readers!

Child safety time! Yes, my youngest of 7 months found the stairs (no child was harmed in the making of this blog…) so I decided it was time to build a safety gate! This project was made from wood that someone was throwing away, but mostly pallet wood. Yep, they threw away perfectly good wood… Like it was worthless or something!!! As always, check out more of my latest projects and more at my blog: Pallet Craft!

P.S. Can you spot the evil cat! His name is Carl, and he is undoubtedly evil!

Good use of tossed mother nature’s best resource!
And I know all about evil cats like the one hiding behind your new gate! We had one many years ago, He was a real terrorist to say the least!

Nice use of somebody’s “trash”. i can’t really tell the dimensions, but you may want to think about capping it with something so a little finger doesn’t find its way into the top there.

There is a tremendous amount of wasted wood out there. Just glad when someone finds a use other than the Landfill.

Cats are in their own little world. We’re just here to serve them.

Good stuff there Ethan. Your work keeps getting better and better. You may single handedly send the world of pallets into a tail spin. One day, we’re going to have to buy them at home depot because people will recognize their value.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

That gate will not keep your cat from plotting to kill you.
