Jared Nielsen is going to instruct us in making stools out of the leftover pallets. He'll walk us through the proper usage of drills, saws and a miter saw. FYI: Jared is the one that guided us through making the fantastic pallet workbenches and finished them up.
If you would like to make a stool to take home, please supply your own heat-treated pallet(s). We might have some leftover so first come first served!
Jared "I have a big pile of materials to bring over. A lot of nice hardwoods, sheet goods and acrylic, all of which can be used for stools and a wall (and more)."
We may wrap up sooner than 2pm depending.
