    Brilliant! When I steal this idea and make million bucks selling these on Etsy I’ll cut you in for a percentage.

    What a clever idea! I never would have thought of this..

    That is so cool. I think if I made them though, I would do the curved cut outs BEFORE cutting the lengths, as it seems safer that way.

    Steve, Don’t be surprised to wake up to truck loads of old beat up pallets in your front yard. Lots of folks out there want to what you come up with next………Another fine job Steve……Steve from Newbury Park, Ca

    Pretty cool Steve. Very much inline with your “pallet phase” that you are going through. Looks like it has run full circle now. Unless you make a gigantic pallet and use it for an outside “deck” hey now? That sounds like an idea.

    Maybe medium-sized ones as trivets?

    Need to size the pallets appropriately so that they will fit on the forks of a radio controlled forklift toy.

    That way you can use the RC Forklift as the bartender’s drink delivery vehicle.

    Or you can use it to scare the cat when delivering the can of Tuna.

    I did a rough up at 1/16 thick, and I honestly think your original at 1/8 looks better, just chunky I guess is the word.

    Cool. I think you actually sent them through the Willy Wonka TV Camera. I noticed in your video your table was missing the umbrella insert. I made one a few months back. You can see it at:

    I like this..! It reminds of the Seinfeld episode where the coffee table book turns into a coffee table.

    I made a dozen this weekend. It worked well to rip the boards into thirds, then split the thickness with the table saw (ripping the narrow way, with boards on edge). This yielded two useful boards to plane down to thickness. I used hot glue augmented with 23ga pin nails.

    Entertain myself counting your fingers each time I view a different episode.

    Steve, what is the music you used on this project?

    I find myself coming back here again and again just to hear the track….oh, and to watch your inimitable televisual skills, naturally!

    My new CEO wanted me to get something unique and special to present to the employees for all their hard work and dedication. One of my colleagues told me about Unique Custom Products in Colorado. I called and they had a host of one of a kind customizable corporate gifts. I chose the wooden coaster set and had it engraved with the names each employee with a ‘Thank You’ and the company logo. The artwork looks great, everyone was really impressed! I would easily recommend them to anyone. They’re awesome!

    I wouldn’t use white school glue for this project as it is water soluble, and will probably come apart.
