2014 Pallet Upcycle Challenge

This is our project for the 2014 Pallet Upcycle Challenge. I made a Christmas Tree from pallet wood. I use pallet wood as much as possible, it's free and folks really like the rustic look. My star and "Merry Christmas" was not made of pallet wood but I think it added a nice touch.

Making A Snowman
Rustic Tea Light Candle Holder
*Getting Ready For The Holidays*
This is a cell phone holder I made using an old Sirius windshield mount that I picked up at a yard sale. These older mounts are all metal and hold up fantastic.

While moving into our new home we found a yardstick. It was above the molding on the basement door. It's in mint condition, but weird it's 48 inches long. The yardstick was given out by a bank. The bank building is now a museum.
Check out Steve Carmichael's page @ Steve found some yardsticks too.

Keep watching as I post the research I do on this bank and the yardstick

  • The State Bank of Terry was Established January 6, 1906
  • Located in Terry Montana
  • The above photo is the bank building

What I Do

My First Post;

This will be a continueing BLOG about my woodworking adventures. I did some woodworking years back but with careers and family woodworking was pushed aside. I primarily made crafts to sell at various shows. Now I've dusted off the old tools and bought some new ones. So it's time to start woodworking again, maybe getting into bigger and better things. Some of the things I made recently;



I have also entered several woodworking contests in the last several months.These contests were lots of fun, and I got to meet many woodworkers while competing. So check out my Facebook page, Youtube Videos, Google+, and this BLOG for updates.
