Pallet Craft #6: Child's Patio Set - part 2

07-18-2012 03:00 AM by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

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...

Pallet Craft #15: Heat treating lumber

08-01-2012 11:18 AM by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

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. This week I felt that conveying the truths about these processes would be important in clearing up a lot of confusion that I have noticed surrounding this information. Back Story In 2002, the IPPC (International Plant Prevention Convention) convened to set new regulations ...

Pallet Craft #7: Rainy day, perfect for brainstorming!

07-19-2012 01:46 PM by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

See this and more at my blog: Pallet Craft Hello All, Well today was kind of a bummer, a rain day interupted my plans to wood work, but my wife suggested a project that she would like me to do… a mobile for our daughter’s crib. “BRILLIANT!” I thought to myself as I grabbed a pen and some paper and proceeded to sketch my design shown below. Mobile Design Sketchup This design is pretty simple, the neck of the mobile will extend out over the crib and will be s...

Pallet Craft #26: Out of the shadows!

10-24-2012 02:07 AM by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

Hello Readers, I have been working on several projects this year and I have made a lot of progress in the way of building things from pallet wood and ultimately showing the worth of the wood contained within the crude pallet structures. I have had some great successes such as the highchair: http://palletcraft.blogspot.com/2012/10/pallet-highchair.html As well as the storage bin: http://palletcraft.blogspot.com/2012/10/replacement-storage-shelves.html The Pallet Gate: http://pallet...

Pallet Craft #8: Bunk Bed Recycled Quick Fix!

07-20-2012 01:03 PM by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

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...

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

11-27-2012 02:39 PM 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. Sometimes you just have to llook at it and say in the words of the great Fozzie Bear, ”What the waka?” This is where I stop and cl...

Pallet Craft #27: Frustration leads to Rushing which leads to more Frustration!

10-27-2012 12:28 PM by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

Hello Readers, That’s it! I have had enough for one day!... Well that is what I should have said, but if you know me I can’t seem to help myself when it comes to frustration and working on things. I know I should stop, after all, all this frustration is just leading me to rush through critical parts of the project! So I change my attitude towards the project, perhaps my project is frustrated with me because it has seen enough work for one day? Perhaps I am overworking th...

Pallet Craft #18: My learning process!

08-06-2012 01:34 PM 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. 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...

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. It is pooring out once again, and because I have nowhere else to work on my projects except for my mobile work station (outdoors), I decided to blog about why I do what I do.
