Have you spent more time than you care to admit on the internet marvelling at the furniture people make out of old pallets? But maybe you don't know where to start or don't have any tools.

As an antidote to this situation a group of young social entrepreneurs are bringing 'carpentry to the people' with their Ales and Nails events, where people can come along, learn new skills, meet some new people and try a new craft beer.

Summer Report presenter Teresa Cowie tagged along to one of their events and built a deck chair out of pallets.
