    That is one heck of a shop. Seems a shame to have wasted all that material, though. I probably would have re-purposed the material to make shelves and cubbies.
    Nice video. Thanks for sharing...

    No uhaul if the pallet was used for stake sides on the truck. Could either dismantle and throw out once you got to the dump- more likely save until it was no longer in good condition.
