Looks like a pretty true copy. And what a find to get pallet wood like that!

Very nice! It looks like it could also be used as a bar. You did well in your adaptation!

Very nice cabinet Bill, I just wish the company I work for would get pallet’s made of Jatoba, just plain old oak that I sometimes use for firewood. Thanks for posting

Jatoba is a wood from Brazil also called Brazilian cherry.

This is a really nice piece, Bill. Jatoba is such a gorgeous wood that it is almost sacrilegious to use it simply for pallets. But you did a wonderful job of salvaging the wood and transforming it into a gorgeous piece of furniture. It is a beautiful wood to work with but it is hard on sawblades and chisels.
