Shades of Grain #1: From Pallet's to Now

509 days ago by Ethan Harris | 9 comments »

Good Morning Everyone. Some of you may know me from my blog series: Pallet Craft. Well I would like to thank those that have read and continue to read my blog series on crafting with pallet wood. While I am not done with that, I have reached a transition in my hobby for wood working. I have been trying to learn as much as possible about woodworking while using pallets as my medium (green, cheap, and interestingly fun), but I have recently purchased lumber for a Christmas project and I a...

Pallet Craft #24: The Ground work

554 days ago by Ethan Harris | 3 comments »

Hello Readers! I am happy to say I have finally laid the groundwork in my woodworking career. I am very happy to have found this hobby, I enjoy it, and I am learning new things everyday. I can see myself in 5 to 10 years building beautiful pieces of art from wood, and past that? Who knows! But I am sure it will be fun! For now I plan to stick with Pallet Crafting, it seems to be a great medium for learning. In the future I would like to work with fine woods, but small steps and a eagerness...

625 days ago by Ethan Harris | 2 comments »

This and more at my blog: Pallet Craft! Hello Readers! Today I am going to share with you the other treatment method used on pallet wood; fumigation using Methyl Bromide.

Methyl Bromide is manufactured from naturally occurring bromide salts. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers this gas to be an ozon...

Pallet Craft #17: Share your project Ideas!

624 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...

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...

568 days ago by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

Hello Readers! Well my daughter is 6 months old now, and she found the staircase this week…(no worries, we stopped her advancement up them) So I will be building a set of upper and lower staircase gates for her protection against nasty spills. I put together this mockup for the design. As usual this will be made from pallet wood and will be featured on my Pallet Craft blog. But alas! I acquired a block plane! And I am very happy with how it changes the way the wood looks...

Shades of Grain #2: The Secrecy is Killing Me!

500 days ago by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

Hello Readers! Well here it is, blog number 2 on Shades of Grain and I am already dying to show off a gift I made for my wife… The problem is, it is a Christmas gift, and she has been awfully sneaky as well as trying to guess what it is I might have made for her. The issue is that my posts end up on Facebook and she travails that site as well… so I am trapped for another 21 days, and its my own doing. It is complete, I can say that much and it came out like a dream! I do hav...

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

549 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...
