Reclaimed Glory #12: This Oak Pallet is rough around the edges, like me!

09-30-2013 07:27 PM by palaswood | 3 comments »

This pallet caught my eye, as it had a bit of a different color to it than the other pallets you see so often. After a quick spot sanding (I now keep 80 through 320 grit in my backpack for times such as these), I confirmed it was indeed solid freakin oak. Sad that it was getting tossed… Since it was going to the landfill, I carried it instead back to behind our companies parking lot until I can bring my pallet demolition tools to bear upon it. I would like to find ...

Make a First Aid Cabinet For the Workshop

05-03-2013 06:39 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 5 comments »

When a viewer sent me a comment asking if I could make a First Aid Cabinet for the workshop, I thought to myself. “Yea what a perfect project to do”, because I am setting up the new shop, and it was the one thing missing. The First aid Cabinet was made almost entirely out of Pallet Wood. Oh yea! my first Pallet Project! – Website – The United Federation of Woodworkers Member Sitehttp://www.twitter...

Miscellaneous kitchenalia #2: small pan rehandling

04-05-2013 02:13 PM by Sodabowski | 4 comments »

Hi guys. So this baby here needed a new handle, the plastic ones being designed to not last. Even though this is a cheap 4€ pancake pan, and that the liner is chipping out, it’s okay, because I use it for melting rocket candy. So it’s getting fixed. First order or business, grab some nice colored palletwood from my old urban gloats (these will last me for years here). Draw the overall dimensions of the handle… ... then take out the (cheap) wood saw and cut i...

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.

View this blog and others at my blog: 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...

Pallet Craft #3: Pallet Board Entertainment Center!

07-16-2012 01:08 AM by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

Also at: 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 #1: Pallet Patio Table with benches set!

07-13-2012 08:50 AM by Ethan Harris | 8 comments »

This week I embarked on my latest creation adventure which I made out of pallet wood boards… a patio table with benches! I wanted this to look prestine and clean while maintaining a sort of rustic feel that the pallet wood gives to it. So I went through my stock of pallet boards and pulled the best quality / matching sized boards I could find and used them in the project. The only things I bought for this project were the screws (I normally use the pallet nails for the ultimate recyc...

Recipe box for a bride

I know what you are going to say: “You are not even done with the last project, the closet dresser”. I know, but this one come up and had to be done first. My second daughter is getting married on June 2nd. Along with that there will be a bridal shower. One of the things they will do on this shower is exchange recipes. So my other daughters commissioned me to make a Recipe box. My daughter likes the “pallet-wood” look. So I found on one the pallets from Taiwan some ...
