And that what you have there is not easy to do if you have ever wrestled with a pallet before. You should be commended for winning! Now onto that lap steel. Very Happy

You go, Larry! You just don't see detailed crowbar work like that anymore.

Here's some inspiration.

The Taylor Pallet guitar. They left the nail holes.

I'm going to make an old pallet out of these.

You could have a "roadworn" pallet series, Charlie. Buy some new lumber, beat it up good, and make it into "used" pallets for that authentic look.

There seems to be a market for them - here's Doc Watson singing about it ..."Make Me A Pallet On Your Floor" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXiXlwiZNGI

This is becoming unpalletable.

After raising expectations a full 6" off the floor, we may have put too much pressure on you to continue with your project, Charlie Sad

I like it Doug...the "palachair" - not to be confused with "palatable". I see the design boasts the proprietary sh*t slits or are those shat slats?

It's kind of open to interpretation.
