Wow, that must be really exciting. It is a good thing that whoever was operating the forklift didn’t dump the whole crate on the ground. What happened? The pallet was poised on the lift gate ready to receive the forks of the lift and the next thing we see it is skewed around and the forks end up under the pallet. Any gory details we should know about the delivery?

By the way, there are so many posts about using pallet wood in projects. You just got an unanticipated windfall of beautiful stock to work with. Probably much nicer than your “seconds” bundles of luthier wood! The pictures that were posted showing the grain patterns in that wood were amazing. Probably a minor defect here or there to reject it for an entire panel on an instrument, but lots of beautiful wood for other projects. How do you find all of these amazing deals?

If I recall correctly from my college dorm days a half a century ago, your pallet wood and a few cinder blocks would make a great set of book shelves. Those were simpler times.

I don’t see a forklift—there’s a pallet jack on the delivery truck, a hand truck on the receiving truck, but no forklift anywhere. To me it looks like the receiving truck’s lift gate/ramp is on top of the lift gate of the delivery truck. Must have been awkward to swizzle that pallet around so it would fit into the receiving truck’s bed!

You are correct. On a closer look what I thought were forks on the back of the second truck was actually a full width lift gate. So there is still a story about the delivery. Why the need to transfer between the trucks? I know that the mill is slated for a concrete pad. Was the original truck too big to just drop it at the site?

I think I would have tried off loading the crate with the pallet jack, temporarily dropping it on a few pieces of 2×4 with some clearance at one end, and then back the second truck’s lift gate under the lip. No mid-air swivel. If you dropped it on some pieces of pipe you could roll it onto truck number two.
