At the beginning of the summer I built this coffee table from old pallets.
Here is how I completed the task.
I started with 4 pallets like the one in the first picture.
I then took them apart and stacked the wood according to how I was going to use it.
I than built four crates and stained them.
Assembled the crates.
Built and add a base to bottom
Add four wheels to make it easy to move around. I know there is a few mistakes but it turned out pretty good for the first time ever making one. I am now making one for my daughter.
Please let me know what you all think.
For the past year I have not been very active with my blog. I have been attending class at Heartland Community College. My plan is to get a certificate in Small Business Management. At present I am carrying a 3.75 grade point average with 13 of 32 credits complete.
I am hoping to use this to advance my career or just might open my own business.
Saw this awesome Jacket on the Bedford Exchange. Seriously thinking of getting me one.
I know I have not been that active. But I hate the way your program comes up. So I will be closing out y account.
The second Ship I was stationed on was the USS San Bernardino LST 1189. She had a flat bottom to her. This was design so that we could take the ship extremely close to the beach to off load the marines.
The bad part about having the flat bottom was she would rock from side to side in any type of sea. It could get really interesting when we were in rough seas.
On one of those underway periods we were in some moderate seas. I had some spare time so I went up on the signal bridge to try and get some pictures of the waves coming up over the bow of the ship. Unfortunately this was the best one I could get before they secured the weather decks due to heavy seas.
Thanks to all the Veterans who have served this country.

Samantha was staring at the picture of the two buffalo nickels’ and thought back to time when she went sky diving with her friend Larry. Larry would always carry a buffalo nickel for luck. Has they were free falling, Larry had the nickel in his hand to help calm his nerves. When he pulled his cord to open the chute he drop the nickel. When they landed they spent the next two hours looking for it.
Samantha just smiled has she stared at the picture remembering how much she love spending time with Larry and how every year after that they would go sky diving on their wedding anniversary and Larry always had that nickel .
I will have to apologise to you all, I have not been keeping up with my blogging over the last few months.
Been way to busy enjoying the spring and summer. I do have some great stories to tell and hope to start blogging here soon.
Just another day in this old sailor’s life.
