Thanks, Matt. This got us thinking.Plus we have a $50 skid under the 1440 when we ship, the crate costs more because it comes assembled, it all adds up.
I beg to differ! That piece of crate furniture is pretty! Nice job and thanks for sharing.mm
Thanks, Matt. This got us thinking.
I have heard of people building things from pallets, so we decided to try and make good use of my new 1440's $50 skid and $400(?) crate.
I was amazed at the quality of hardwood from the skid -- oak, maple, and popular -- and the amount of clear pine and birch from the crate. That lumber at retail would be at least $200.
All that lumber turned into a mobile stand up desk for use in the shop.
Here the crate and skid. Nicely built and very effective.

And here is what it turned into. Not pretty, but functional, and very cheap.
