726 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...

Back Story In 2002, the IPPC (International Plant Prevention Convention) convened to set new regulations ...

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

610 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.
