pretty good. I've been eyeing up the pile of pallets and thinking of making a bench. I suspect my bench will look like a pile of pallets...

I'd like to claim the design, but it's not mine. Saw them at a beer festival. The back is sprung, so it's more comfortable than it looks.

Nice chair. Yes it is a pain and time-consuming but can be worth it

Very nice. We fire our charcoal kiln on pallets and we are having problems getting them at the moment. People will insist on taking them for making things, usually without asking the owner. In addition, with fewer people travelling, the tyre place we get the pallets from are getting fewer deliveries.

Are you bored Nick?

That is really good. How long did it take you?

BORED? I'm married. I have a list of jobs that keeps growing, as well as a full time job. Ish. (maybe 8 hours a week, currently.)

How long did it take? Well. There are two schools of thought on this.

School 1. I saw very similar ones at a beer festival in May last year. Making them became added to my list there and then. I bought the staves from the same brewery around a month later. (£30 for 9) And I bought the pallets from someone local about a fortnight ago for a tenner. So, about a year.

School 2. I put the saw to the first pallet about an hour and a half before screwing the final barrel stave onto the arm. Arguably, it still wants running over with a sanding block, but under 2 hours, and the only plan I had was in my head, so plenty of tea was consumed during the time.

People who choose school 1 as the answer are in the, incorrect, minority.

Definitely School 1 and I'm pretty sure I am not in the minority.
