For more on this and other posts, visit: Pallet Craft! Hey all! Today I have something cool to share! So we just got a bunk bed (see my blog for type) second hand for my daughter to have in her room.As we were building it we were saying to ourselves that we wanted to put her stuffed animals on the bottom, but we did not have a second mattress yet and the bottom only had a metal wire support. It was safe to say we wanted to put something on it that would be better than bare metal! My wif...

Hello All, This is not a new tip, but I thought I’d mention it in my blog anyways. As always see my blog at: http://blogspud.blogspot.com/ Ok so working with pallets is not always perfect, the wood is definately not top grade by any means and I will not pretend it is. So occasionally you are going to want to use a wood filler at some point. Now Elmer’s, as well as Varathane and Rustoleum sell wood filler that is pretty good, but the cost can add up significantly and this is ...

I do not have a picture of the round ends showing the dado edges. After the ends were both made, I selected a veneer tha can be wrapped around. I nailed brads to temp...
