Purpose: Reuse scrap wood from a shipping pallet, to make something cool and useful

Tools: hammer, prybar or mallet, sawsall, orbital sander, pneumatic nail gun, table saw, table router, Photoshop, large plotter
Materials: old pallet, 3/16” foam core, hardware

Step 1: Disassembly

Sometimes it's the simplest tool you need, and a good old fashion hammer can do wonders.  Normally I would use a pry-bar, but since I was working inside with other people around I opted to go with a slightly less obnoxious method and use a rubber mallet.  The sawsall came in handy for cutting out unusable sections, but otherwise this was a straightforward process.
