So many Pallets

I’ve posted some of these on here before when I was messing around with them, now I make them quite often. These are the pallet coasters and pallet trivets I make on a regular basis.

Made from scrap wood / cut offs of Oak and Walnut. Assembled piece by piece using just glue then (sometimes) painted using a USA-outline I had made and then varnished on top for protection. Breaking down the scraps into the component parts is very time consuming, I have actually grown fond of the hours of gluing it takes to make a batch of 500+.

I also combine the pallets and trivets as ‘gift sets’

Cheers,

-Chris

Nice… sets of 500? How much can one charge for a set I wonder? I made 6 in oak as a gift to a customer, who ordered an oak table. Never thought about selling them.

Very unique. No sure about wishing to make 500 of them though. LOL

They look just like the real thing. They are very creative and I can see how they would make a popular gift or item to sell. Congratulations.

They are very beautiful. Good idea with country/state shape sprayed. It’s my last project too and agree about time consuming, cutting and gluing all those small parts (I made europallets with 21 pcs each – I shoul also made American pallet with 13 pcs instead, next time).

cool idea,
I’ve seen some pallets that the use the strips of wood painted red and white on the pallet as the stripes in the flag also and painted blue square and the stars in one corner.

Thanks all

Sheisserick – Pricing varies depending on what it is, you can peek at my Etsy store as it is varied. Believe it or not, these things alone have almost paid for the entire hobby, some new tools included.

How thick did you go on the wood? It looks like 1/16” on the top and maybe 1/4” on the supports, is that close? It’s hard to tell because I don’t know how close they are to the camera.They came out nice.
