Pallet of Time
I'm glad you kept the mistake and posted it. People get too anal about mistakes when they are doing something, which, in a lot of cases that's a good thing. But this mistake - it's cute and it is funny and it's funny to see new people look at it and see if they even notice the mistakes. :)
Glad this could make you smile. Sometimes doing a project can be so intense. When I finished and I saw my mistake I kind of chuckled....I was going to sell the piece and decided to keep it, so I left the little mistake. It is now hanging on my living room wall. :-)As for the cable winders idea - Great minds think a like. I also make clocks out of those. See my photo attached! Super fun and easy to do. This picture was me 1/2 way thru the project. I added some finishing embellishments - like the person's family name on it so it was personal to them.
I'm super excited the sparked and idea for a project for you and can't wait to see the results :-)
I caught the mistake right away but didn't want to embarrass her - figured someone else had pointed it out already so I didn't have to. But I do like it as is - it made me grin and man could I use a grin right about now :) Thanks for the ible. You know, I just thought of something. Rather than use a pallet, what if you could get one of those wooden cable winders. They're wood (usually) and the tops and bottoms are both round so you would just have to cut them off the top, or make it as a decorative table - a conversation starter if you will.
Boy do I have an idea for this project!! I'll share whenever I can get it done!

This is a super cute idea! This would look great outside on my patio! thank you for the idea and the instructions!
yes indeed it is ;). Thank you for enjoying my humor with me...hehehe
Very nice job! I'm going to get that tool one day, this project just makes me want to get it sooner! Thank you for sharing!
Very nice job! Love the table. Love the idea of using a dowel connection for your wood. I personally use the pocket hole for these types of things, only becuase I figure who is going to see under the table...LOL. But this is another great way to do it. I am certainly going to give this a try. THANKS for sharing.
WOW! Very cool. Not sure I will have the ambition to do, but in the event that I do, these are great instructions. Alos, I love that you revised this old table saw. I had one that I purchased at an auction, and it weighed a ton! I used it for 2 years and the motor stopped working. Got the motor fixed and it worked another year. I built a workbench for it to sit on but the workbench was a beast to move around, so i recently retired it. My worktable/bench is now much lighter with a new less heavier table saw. :-).
It's Thirteen O'clock somewhere..... :)
This is very cool!
Very nice cabinet!
