Two weeks ago, our plan was to skillfully turn a couple of free pallets into a dining room table and matching benches. I had suprisingly little apprehension for a person who owns NO TOOLS, and possesses NO SKILLS.
Alan had enough apprehension for both of us. But he was managing to be supportive. He even "blue steeled" it when I took a picture of him sawing the pallet in half by hand. He's amazing.
A week later we scored some amazing dining room furnature and gave up on the idea to turn that pallet into benches.
So we were left with a sawed in half pallet... and Alan's dream of a garden.
