Great Job. Should protect the chisels and keep them handy for the next job.

Hi woodworm;

I don’t know about this one. It’s a nice job and all but it may prevent you from buying more carving tools.

I shudder to think!

Thanks Lee
Surely I will not buy more than I need. Very seldom use them. But once a while I need to use it when doing intricate repairs et.

Neat and functional little box – why didn’t you carve something on it?

Thanks David,
I’m interested in carving & turning too, but haven’t got the guts to try.
Work safe.

Very nice. The quality of wood found in a pallet can be surprising.

Thanks to you all for the comments.

I’ve been collecting pallet wood since four years back when I purchased a contractor table saw and a router. I could not afford to spend more money on lumber for practising woodworking. And it’s just a hobby afterall. So I got the idea of making good use of pallet wood.

Not many know the hidden beauty of pallet wood. Roughly sawn lumber does not reveal its beautiful pattern of wood grain & growth ring. Once we plane it clean and sand it smooth, then we realized that she is such a beautiful women we ought to be sorry to ignore before.

Ha ha ha.
