May 6th, 2017: Make Me A Pallet On Your (Forest) Floor
This guy from Odense, Denmark, Thomas Danbo has some mad skilz. Madder than a wet hen, as my uncle used to say.

That whole concept is neat.

Do you have the urge to push or pull each board to see if it's the key to taking it apart?

I suspect 97,000 Spax screws.

I like Little Tilde in the first picture up top. He/she is not threatening, not helping, just watching. Learning lessons from good and bad things seen and trying to separate each into the proper column. Not easy when his/her head is already stuffed with 28 bird houses.

The more I see of those, the better I like them.

Listen for that warning low growl.

The construction reminds me a lot of boat building. Much more complex shapes than boat building, which makes it harder. But also the joints don't have to be so perfectly tight. An eighth inch gap here and there is no big deal. So that makes it easier.

At Danbo's website, click on the picture of Teddy Friendly and it shows Dambo and his six helpers(all friends) during construction.

On another project the head is prefabbed, I think the feet too.

When I was in college, studying furniture design, there was a guest teacher who worked for a company called Bronx 2000 that had a spin-off company called Big City Forest. They had a contract with Con Edison to take about 3,500 pallets a week that they turned into flooring and furniture.

My buddy used to bring home pallets from work for firewood. All the runners were hardwood and the slats were whatever they could get. There was one pallet that was almost all Black Walnut.
