Topic tags/keywords: humor fiberboard construction tools

Just thought I’d bring everybody up to speed with the new a·vant-garde style of woodworking, which I’m sure will be replacing the use of pallet wood.
While browsing web sites dedicated to antiques & furniture for inspiration, I came across this new style of furniture that I’m sure all will be able to make, beginners & seasoned woodworkers alike. For more on this new craze, see the websites below. So sell off your precision hand tools & invest in good construction grade equipment.

although it’s used extensively in the construction industry, I still can’t think of a good use for it in my wood shop

I wouldn’t even have that nasty looking mess in my shop for shop furniture. That mess is a pathetic excuse for furniture. If I took something home like that to my wife she would toss me back out the door on my head. No way would I show that mess to any of our clients either nor would I build a piece of it for anyone

haha good one jwmalone. Thanks for the humor today. .

That dude will probably get raved reviews for it in NYC. Here in these mountains he would get asked why did you mess up all that good construction grade stuff, have you lost your mind?

Maybe Donald Trump will buy it to use in his high Class Hotels and call it Art.

Saw those and immediately thought, “A new use for scrap construction materials!” I actually thought someone was dumpster diving construction dumpsters for furniture project fodder.

You know, ive used plenty of that stuff over the years. I’m sure they smoothed it out with something but can you imagine getting frisky with you’re girl on that stuff, lol

Hideous. But, the hipsters will probably eat it up….

Back when I was in Desert Storm, we had a guy in my squadron that packed some carpentry tools along, and he made furniture out of this stuff and broken down pallets. In a practical-sense, it worked great.

01ntrain,
First and foremost, thank you for your service, much appreciated.
That guy was ahead of his time, should have saved his work for the USA where some rich smuck would pay top dollar for it.
Live and learn.

Looks like something you’d see in a Willamette Valley Pot dispensary. That’s a new term for those old, Head Shops, back in the 60’s and 70’s. I got to tell you that looks like real cheap S#$t.
