My first pallet wood project! I've had the pallet sitting in the pole barn for about six months. Wood is maple, very splitty and splintery. I needed a few cheap planter boxes to temporarily hold divisions from my raspberry patch. Since the maple was split at the nails and impossible to easily disassemble, I cut the slats off with my Ryobi One cordless circular saw (LOVE that saw!), evened them up on the chop saw and nailed them together with a lotta brads. No tape measure, no way to make a mistake, no sanding or finishing. That's a project I can enjoy! By the way, if anyone in Michigan wants some Cumberland Black Raz shoots, I have about 25!
