Episode 545: The Blue Pallet

Feb 21, 2018

Note: This episode originally ran in 2014.

Certain things are just hard to improve. The classic example: the mousetrap. And for a while, the pallet was the mousetrap of good transportation.

In its way, the pallet is perfect. It's cheap and easy to make. It keeps things a few inches off the floor and works with a forklift. If you get cold, you can burn them. Amazing.

Today on the show: Yes, you can build a better pallet.

(And as promised, here's the article Whitewood under Siege in Cabinet Magazine.)

This episode first aired on DATETK.

Music: "Hot Chocolate" and "Skyward."
