707 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.

709 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 more on this topic and other posts visit Pallet Craft! Hello Readers! I wanted to take this time to go further in depth on the use of heat treatment in pallets here in the U.S. and other U.N. member nations.

View more images for this post at: Pallet Craft! Hello Readers! Working with pallets can be fun, it can be gratifying, and it can keep you busy… These are all good things, but there is a dark side to the madness that is; Pallet Craft! Difficulty #1 – Many pallets are decayed or built with cheap wood. It is unfortunate, but many pallets cannot be repaired for use, at least not by me. If this is not bad enough, some pallets are beyond decay, and are not fit for my use and m...

Too see more images on this and other projects, please go to Pallet Craft! Hello all! This was a gift that I made for my fiance the year before our wedding. This breadbox was my first wood working creation that I built with my own two hands, so please excuse the crudeness of the door! It is all purchased wood that I picked up from a hardware store where I went to school. On each side I carved my wife’s (fiance then) favorite flower (Calla Lily) and burned it with a butane lighter ...

For the images and more on this post, please go to: Pallet Craft Hello Readers! So yesterday evening was very productive indeed, although I did not get as far as I wanted, I was able to get a good leg up. Yesterday was also an incredibly tough trial of temptation.

However, the temptation became very intriuging and alluring to build the...
