Pallet Craft #24: The Ground work

10-12-2012 02:26 PM by Ethan Harris | 3 comments »

Hello Readers! I am happy to say I have finally laid the groundwork in my woodworking career. I am very happy to have found this hobby, I enjoy it, and I am learning new things everyday. I can see myself in 5 to 10 years building beautiful pieces of art from wood, and past that? Who knows! But I am sure it will be fun! For now I plan to stick with Pallet Crafting, it seems to be a great medium for learning. In the future I would like to work with fine woods, but small steps and a eagerness...

Pallet Craft #11: Temptation Neutralized and a quick update!

07-25-2012 01:47 PM by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

For the images and more on this post, please go to: Pallet Craft Hello Readers! So yesterday evening was very productive indeed, although I did not get as far as I wanted, I was able to get a good leg up. Yesterday was also an incredibly tough trial of temptation. When I started out on this project I designed the whole thing to be built out of pallet wood, to show that they could be used in nice project builds. However, the temptation became very intriuging and alluring to build the...

Pallet Craft #21: Finally back from the depths of my Pallet Crafting!

Good Morning Readers! Hooray! I am back from the depths of my Pallet Crafting! This weekend I will finally complete a few projects that I want to share with all of you! The Trials! These past few weeks have been a test of endurance and patience. A few failed projects hit the fan, but I gained a ton of experience and knowledge from doing them! I have learned now to take more time for each cut, measuring and remeasuring before the cut line was drawn, then measuring the final cut pie...

Blast from My not so Distant Past! #2: Bread Box!

Too see more images on this and other projects, please go to Pallet Craft! Hello all! This was a gift that I made for my fiance the year before our wedding. This breadbox was my first wood working creation that I built with my own two hands, so please excuse the crudeness of the door! It is all purchased wood that I picked up from a hardware store where I went to school. On each side I carved my wife’s (fiance then) favorite flower (Calla Lily) and burned it with a butane lighter ...

View more images for this post at: Pallet Craft! Hello Readers! Working with pallets can be fun, it can be gratifying, and it can keep you busy… These are all good things, but there is a dark side to the madness that is; Pallet Craft! Difficulty #1 – Many pallets are decayed or built with cheap wood. It is unfortunate, but many pallets cannot be repaired for use, at least not by me. If this is not bad enough, some pallets are beyond decay, and are not fit for my use and m...

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...
