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. Here are a couple of my latest “woops” and “oh…” moments as a beginner at woodworking. 1. The wooden vice. I thought this would be a great idea and it seemed to work well in pre-applied testing. Unfortunately the threads are too few, and the wood I used for t...
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...
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...
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. This table is designed for my daughter to have and will have pretty much the same look as the full size set that I built. I plan to make like benches and stain the wood the same as we...
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...

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...
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...
