Well, no, that’s not how it happened: My husband laboriously and patiently took the pallets apart and de-nailed the boards. Then he planed them.…”

  1. Ahem. A very cool project, but please forgive me for inserting a minor correction:

    Slue:
    1. To turn (something) on an axis; rotate: slued the swivel chair around; sluing the boom of a crane.
    2. To turn sharply; veer: braked and slued the car around.

    Slew:
    A large amount or number; a lot: a slew of unpaid bills.
