That is pretty cool. Looks time consuming.

Very neat project. I like these kinds of pallet coasters better than the popsicle-stick kinds. Could you provide the dimensions of the individual pieces? Also, how did you make the rounded cutout in the side “rails”?

Don, side rails are 1/2 inch by 4 inches long, 1/4 inch thick. cross boards are 5/16 by 3 1/2 long 1/8 inch
thick. I cut the side rails with my scroll saw, I glued and pin nailed them together. you will need 13 of the
cross boards, and 3 of the rail boards. hope you make some people really love them.

thank you guys for the comments.

How did you shrink those pallets. Must have taken lots of heat and good dryer. haha

Very nice.

You need to do some creative photography with a forklift in the background to make that can look huge. Fun project.

We have a vendor who sells packaging who uses a very similar mini-pallet with a yellow sticky pad on top.

The stickies have their company name and phone # on them, so it makes for clever advertising.

No mystery about what they sell….. pallets :^)

The choice of beverage sends the wrong message to young and upcomming woodworkers. But compared to all the sweetened beverages; In my shop it is Coors, in bottles, full stregth and the refrigerator set to 38 degrees, the same temperature that is used at the AZ Diamondback stadium. Seriously good clean water. Nice project :)
