One afternoon while at Steph’s house, she & Tyler took a walk & spotted a pallet curbside at a neighbor’s house. They couldn’t just leave it there so they hauled it to her house where Tyler promptly "wanted to help Aunt Stephie make a Lego table."
Steph already had a painted piece of MDF which we cut to size with a circular saw. To aide in cutting, Vicki set up a “fence.” The fence is something like a metal yardstick that is clamped to the piece that is to be cut. The edge of the circular saw butts up against the fence keeping the cut nice & straight.
The real work came a few days later when Vicki was tasked with sanding the rough spots—and you know what, EVERYTHING on a pallet is a rough spot! It was made more difficult due to painting first, but we knew it would be. Steph finished up the painting after sanding. We attached the casters to the four corners adding blocks of wood for support.
