Pallet Craft #17: Share your project Ideas!

717 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...

Step 1: Cut the boards off of the top of the pallet.From the edges as close to the brace boards as possible, cut the top Boards (top bec...

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

642 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...

Pallet Craft #3: Pallet Board Entertainment Center!

736 days ago by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

Also at: http://blogspud.blogspot.com/2012/07/pallet-board-corner-entertainment.html Hey Everybody! Okay, so after the completion of my last project with pallet wood, I have turned my attention to an issue, my current embarrassment of an entertainment center. To be fair to myself, this was one of my first projects, it had doors, had a coat hanger pole, and was actually a dresser. But since we have moved, it is causing a bit of a clutter and is incredibly imposing. So what bett...

Pallet Craft #4: Never buying wood filler again!

735 days ago by Ethan Harris | 5 comments »

Hello All, This is not a new tip, but I thought I’d mention it in my blog anyways. As always see my blog at: http://blogspud.blogspot.com/ Ok so working with pallets is not always perfect, the wood is definately not top grade by any means and I will not pretend it is. So occasionally you are going to want to use a wood filler at some point. Now Elmer’s, as well as Varathane and Rustoleum sell wood filler that is pretty good, but the cost can add up significantly and this is ...

Hello All, As always check out this, and other projects at my blog: http://blogspud.blogspot.com/ I am finishing up a project I started on the side with my adult patio table set and I wanted to blog about it in my series while I wait for my wednesday pallet pickup for my next project as seen in my blog.

Pallet Craft #6: Child's Patio Set - part 2

734 days ago by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

View this blog and others at my blog: http://blogspud.blogspot.com/2012/07/pallet-craft-childs-patio-table-set_17.html Hey All, Made some more progress tonight on the child’s patio table piece. I was able to join the top with the bottom and legs. Unfortunately its too late in the day and I still need to sand, touch up the piece a bit and then waterproof and stain to get the right finished product I want. Any other outdoor builders notice that the mosquitoes are a lot less friendly...

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...

Pallet Craft #26: Out of the shadows!

636 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...
