Hello Readers!

So yesterday evening was very productive indeed, although I did not get as far as I wanted, I was able to get a good leg up. Yesterday was also an incredibly tough trial of temptation.

When I started out on this project I designed the whole thing to be built out of pallet wood, to show that they could be used in nice project builds. However, the temptation became very intriuging and alluring to build the shelves for this project from the plywood boards used in my previously repurpesed bureau that this build was meant to replace, I mean afterall, that would be recycling! But then it hit me.

The whole point of this blog is to build things out of pallet wood! To take what could be wasted and disgarded or burned and turn them into useful projects that not only have a touch of class but look like nice pieces in any application. So I had to say no to the easy way out!

It is safe to say that I have defeated the temptation to use the plywood. Check out my progress from last night at Pallet Craft!
