Episode #85 - Newest Palletmaker of the Month

Meet The Newest Pallet Maker of the Month
Chuck Middleton: Woodworker, Cyclist, & Dedicated Family Man

Well it was no surprise to me that the newest Pallet Maker of the Month over at The Rough Cut Show is dedicated Rough Cutter, Chuck Middleton.

It doesn’t take long to see that Chuck’s woodworking game is at a high level and very deserving of being The Pallet Maker of the Month.
Below are some photos of Chuck's work (used with his permission).

Check out Chuck’s current project which is a spectacular set of two Steve Latta (FWW #180) inspired Folding Federal Card Tables. I was very impressed with Chuck's crisp detailed work. The complicated folding knuckle that is a hallmark of these tables is absolute perfection. Chuck is bringing everything to bear while completing this project including his vacuum bag for laying up the curved apron.

Bottom line, when you clear off your bench and focus on woodworking we all are woodworkers! (phone conversation T-Chisel 12/08) Raise the level of your work . . . Join Pallet Makers Local 207 Today!

Comment from Chuck:


Thank you for the kind words and pointing out that being a Rough Cutter is more than just talking about woodworking. As Tchisel likes to say, you need to push yourself and get out of your comfort zone and try different and new techniques. The other important messages that sums up Tommy and most of the other Rough Cutters are always help other woodworkers when ever possible, and to always strive to be the best woodworker and person you can be.
