My wife found plans to make flannel characters/symbols that tell the history/story behind Christmas to our daughter, but she needed a way to display them. We chose the design after looking around the internet and made a tree from pallets, with the tree made of red oak and the base from pine. It is a shame, in my opinion, to cover up this lumber with paint, but she was the boss on this project. Each night, we add one more character/symbol to the tree. My daughter has been enjoying it so far and it is a fun way to spend time together.

Great idea! Pallet wood might fit the bill for a similar project. Congrats on a meaningful item for the Christmas holiday.
Edit: showed it to the Mrs. and overlooked the title- pallet wood. Senior moment? Could you post the basic dimensions? Thanks for sharing!

Knothead62,

The base is 22” wide x 4” high x 3” deep.
The trunk is 40” tall x 3” wide x 5/8” thick.
The branches start out at 25-3/4” on the bottom at the widest and 3-1/2” on the top at the thinnest point.

Let me know if you need anything else.
