I have no formal woodworking training and rely largely on my imagination…

My name is Dave and I live in Stamford in Lincolnshire, UK with my wife Shalini and  2 dogs, Taj and Manali.

I have started looking at old used shipping pallets in a new light after exploring what people make from them, there are some fab examples on Pinterest and Youtube. So I am slowly building up my workshop and building some nice stuff myself. I am even using pallet wood to build some of the tools that will make life easier.

It is my aim is to share the stuff I make and how I do it on this blog in the hope that you might get inspired to make your own stuff from pallets and stop them going to landfill!
