How to dismantle a pallet quick and easy like a pro

In this video I'll quickly show you how I take a pallet apart, remove the nails from the wood and salvage as much wood as possible. In future videos I'll talk about the individual tools, where you can find them and their pros and cons.

Tools I use to break down Pallets:
The Vestil SKB-DLX Deluxe Steel Pallet Buster with Handle, 41"

Air locker ap700 professional Punch Nailer/Nail Remover

Crescent NP11 11-Inch Nail Pulling Pliers, Red/Black

Making a wall-mounted cordless tool and battery charging and tool station

I'm renovating a house we purchased and we are out of surfaces to put tools and batteries. Since I'm tired of seeing batteries, chargers and sometimes tools (and wires, did I mention wires?!?) on the floor. I just had to do something.

I used a kreg jig for the pocket holes, a countersink bit to make sure the screws were flush with the material. Mounted the whole thing on the wall and minus a few mistakes the whole thing went very well.

Isabelle and I collaborate in making a wood pencil box. Given that my skills are quite low in this department (she is the expert) I only take care of sourcing the wood and cutting the pieces to size.
