David this is a beautiful build. I really like the multi-colors from the grain along with the knots. Love the finish you did on this. You have shown some extra-care in this and the details are clean and cripsp with straight lines and percise fitting of the drawer alignment is percise craftsmanship. Another nice fact about this is that is recycled and scrap wood. Very nice David, Thank you for sharing.

Nice job! You mean ‘Pallet wood’ though, don’t you?

There’s nothing like using pallet wood to make something nice. Congratulations.

Nice use of pallet wood, better than I would expect from salvage.

Looks very good David,

Apart from the drawer fronts themselves, every thing else is sound and simple basic construction using commonsence

A few questions
Q1 Have you had any problems with the joints poping apart?
Q2 How much waste do you estimate is lost due to recycling?
Q3 Did you do any decicated matching before assembly?

When my Son and I made the transportable Bar we had to do a second run for pallets due to wastage and some total loss pieces. It was a lot of fun and experience and well worth the additional effort.

-- Regards Robert
