I am a manager at a warehouse. We were loading a trailer full of scrap pallets, usually they are pretty light. We found a 48”X45” pallet that took two people to handle. I am a 6 foot, 210 pound retired Sailor, I am no little guy. This was heavy. I decided to take it home and make this from it. I went through 3 sets of blades on my planer, cutting it only 1/32” at a pass. This was dense. I have no idea what it is (don’t say it’s a table), but it was hard on top of heavy. If the rain ever stops, Ill post some pictures of it in the sunlight.
I decided that this will be my contribution to the Chinese Christmas gift exchange at my mom’s this weekend.
-- A carpenter takes an ugly, knotted, twisted piece of wood and makes something beautiful and pure from it. Jesus is a carpenter, I am a piece of wood.
