FIRE WOOD FROM PALLETS

BOUGHT FROM A CAR BOOT/FLEA MARKET 10 BAGS VARIOUS SIZES TIMBER,POT LUCK WHAT YOU GET IN BAGS.MOST BAGS CONTAINED 2 INCH X 1/2 INCH X 9 INCH LENGHTS OF PALLET WOOD READY FOR A LOG OR OPEN FIRE.10 BAGS/SACKS FOR £5.MANAGED TO GET 7 BAGS WITH DECENT SIZE TIMBERS IN THE OTHERS WERE OK FOR A OUTSIDE FIRE NOT FOR INDOOR USE ON A OPEN FIRE.REASON BEING THESE PALLETS ARE TREATED.BURN THEM AND THE SMELL AND FUMES FROM THE TREATMENT THEY USED ,WHICH I DO NOT KNOW IS NOT GOOD FOR THE LUNGS. AS I MENTIONED THIS TO THE SELLER BEFORE SEEING WHAT TIMBERS HE HAD IN THE SACKS BEFORE BUYING.HE GLADLY SOLD THE LOT FOR £5. BARGAIN TO ME AS THIS IS WHAT I MADE FROM THE DECENT LENGHTS. AS ALWAYS MACHINED AND PLANNED THEN MADE THESE PLANTER BOXES, THEN BOILED LINSEEDED THEM.AS I HAVE LONGER LENGHTS OF PALLET WOOD TO MAKE THE TRELLIS AND UPRIGHTS.THE 9 INCH LENGHTS MAKE THE BASES. FOR EVERYTHING I MAKE ALL IDEAS ARE IN MY MIND AS I GO ALONG.I DONT ONLY CONCENTRATE ON ONE PIECE I AM MAKING.! WHEN I AM IN MY SMALL WORKSHOP I ALWAYS HAVE  3 PIECES ON THE GO.IF I AM MACHINING PALLETS,I WILL HAVE ANOTHER IDEA IN MY MIND TO START MAKING ANOTHER ILLUSION PUZZLE THAT I THOUGHT OF WHILE MACHINING PALLETS,SO I STOP THAT AND START THE PUZZLE,THEN ANOTHER IDEA MAY COME TO MIND SO I GET ON THE LATHE AND START SOMETHING ELSE. AS EVERYTHING I DO IS ALWAYS IN MY MIND I NEVER FORGET!.BUT IF I PUT PEN TO PAPER I TEND TO LOSE MY BITS OF PAPER AROUND THE WORKSHOP.UNLESS I HAVE A ORDER TO MAKE SOMETHING BIG SAY A  ARCHED SASH WINDOW FRAME THEN I CONCENTRATE ON THAT TILL I GET TO WHERE I WANT TO ON THE PIECE THEN I START SOMETHING ELSE THAT WAS ON MY MIND.SOME DAYS IF I GET A JOB COME IN I THINK TO MYSELF, YEP IF I GO FOR IT I CAN DO THAT IN A DAY.MY DAYS TO START AND FINISH A PIECE THAT HAS BE ORDERED BY A CUSTOMER EXAMPLE   IF THEY WANT A RADIATOR COVER THE PALLET ONE,THAT WILL BE MADE IN A DAY A LONG DAY!.FROM START TO FINISH  12/15 HOURS.THATS MACHINING ALL TIMBER TO ASSEMBLING TO FINISHNING.AND ITS DELIVERED NEXT DAY. THESE RADIATOR COVERS MADE BY A COMPANY CAN BE PRODUCED IN HOURS AS ITS ALL MDF AND CNC MACHINED.BUT DOING IT MY WAY FROM PALLETS THE CUSTOMER KNOWS THAT ITS ALL HAND MADE AND TO THEIR SIZE THEY ORDERED AND ITS FROM RECYCLED TIMBER,WHICH THEY LIKE.!! MAKING A PIECE HAND MADE TO CUSTOMERS DESIGN AND IDEA GIVE YOU THE SATISFACTION THAT THEY APPRECIATE YOUR SKILLS AND TALENT.AND IF YOU DO A GOOD JOB FOR THEM WORD GETS AROUND TO OTHER POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS AND THATS HOW LIFE IS.YOU MAKE IT HOW YOU WANT IT. AND IF YOUR HAPPY DOING WHAT YOU LIKE THEN ITS ALL WORTH IT IN THE END.
