Pallet Craft #28: What the waka? Stress relief.

631 days ago by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

Good Morning All, Ever run into a piece of wood (pallet wood in this case) and wonder; “How the heck did that warp like that?” Working with pallet wood can be a twisted mess of metal, warp and work. These things lead to a lot of distress trying to make them work for a project, leading you to want to pull your hair straight out. Sometimes you just have to llook at it and say in the words of the great Fozzie Bear, ”What the waka?” This is where I stop and cl...

Pallet Craft #27: Frustration leads to Rushing which leads to more Frustration!

662 days ago by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

Hello Readers, That’s it! I have had enough for one day!... Well that is what I should have said, but if you know me I can’t seem to help myself when it comes to frustration and working on things. I know I should stop, after all, all this frustration is just leading me to rush through critical parts of the project! So I change my attitude towards the project, perhaps my project is frustrated with me because it has seen enough work for one day? Perhaps I am overworking th...

Pallet Craft #26: Out of the shadows!

665 days ago by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

Hello Readers, I have been working on several projects this year and I have made a lot of progress in the way of building things from pallet wood and ultimately showing the worth of the wood contained within the crude pallet structures. I have had some great successes such as the highchair: http://palletcraft.blogspot.com/2012/10/pallet-highchair.html As well as the storage bin: http://palletcraft.blogspot.com/2012/10/replacement-storage-shelves.html The Pallet Gate: http://pallet...

Pallet Craft #25: I've got Christmas projects on my mind!

671 days ago by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

Hello Readers! Well from the title of this entry, you can probably guess what this is about. Yes, Halloween has not even come yet; Yes, Thanksgiving is more than a month away! But I have learned that planning and starting now will give me the time I need to get the projects done. Why wait until the snow is falling and the bitter cold bites? So what will I be building? Well that is a secret and I will post all about them on December 26th and 27th. I don’t want any gift receivers to...

Hello Readers! Just a quick update: I got plans for the maloof chair, so I will be studying these extensively for my build.

Pallet Craft #18: My learning process!

744 days ago by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

Find this and more at Pallet Craft! Hello Readers! Well everyone goes through a learning period when figuring out what can and can’t be done, and how you should and should not go about things. Here are a couple of my latest “woops” and “oh…” moments as a beginner at woodworking. 1. The wooden vice. I thought this would be a great idea and it seemed to work well in pre-applied testing. Unfortunately the threads are too few, and the wood I used for t...

Pallet Craft #17: Share your project Ideas!

747 days ago by Ethan Harris | 2 comments »

See this post and more at Pallet Craft Hello Readers! You have probably seen lots of things made from pallets on the Internet, from chairs to storage and much more. However there is a key distinction between building projects from pallets and building projects with pallet wood. While both of these methods are recycling the pallet wood and putting them to good use (which I applaud), I want to show that the wood from these pallets can be turned into beautiful pieces instead of usin...

758 days ago by Ethan Harris | 2 comments »

For all the images on this entry and others please go to my blog: pallet craft! Hello All, This is part of my series Pallet Craft on my blog. It is pooring out once again, and because I have nowhere else to work on my projects except for my mobile work station (outdoors), I decided to blog about why I do what I do. Woodworking in general came to me as something foriegn that I had never really given a lot of thought of doing (I mean common, I was a tech student), I thought of it as so...

Pallet Craft #8: Bunk Bed Recycled Quick Fix!

761 days ago by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

For more on this and other posts, visit: Pallet Craft! Hey all! Today I have something cool to share! So we just got a bunk bed (see my blog for type) second hand for my daughter to have in her room.As we were building it we were saying to ourselves that we wanted to put her stuffed animals on the bottom, but we did not have a second mattress yet and the bottom only had a metal wire support. It was safe to say we wanted to put something on it that would be better than bare metal! My wif...

762 days ago by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

See this and more at my blog: Pallet Craft Hello All, Well today was kind of a bummer, a rain day interupted my plans to wood work, but my wife suggested a project that she would like me to do… a mobile for our daughter’s crib. “BRILLIANT!” I thought to myself as I grabbed a pen and some paper and proceeded to sketch my design shown below. Mobile Design Sketchup This design is pretty simple, the neck of the mobile will extend out over the crib and will be s...
