That is totally awesome.
Fabulous result, I love all the colours and textures in that wood.
Congratulations on a great job.

One thing is for sure, there is not another one like it in the world. Luv it.

Sorry, don’t like the idea of used Mexican pallets with dog shit on the bottom in my kitchen!

It would be a nice piece for a basement or garage.

A question for you … I really like the look of the top of this. What did you do to clean the wood and yet preserve the character? I’d like to achieve that look on a picture frame someday, if you can share some info on how you got the loose stuff off without taking away the saw marks, that would be great.

EngineerChic:
Actually the top is reclaimed barn wood. We cleaned it with hand held wire brush( brass). I scrubbed it for about an hour( maybe less, didn’t really time it). Then i used my air compressor. Then used an electric palm sander that i rigged up to use fine scotch brite. It didn’t really do much after the wire brush scrub, but i think i could’ve done it instead. Another cleaning from the air compressor & then quickly hit it with palm sander & 220 sand paper to remove some of the roughness & a little age but left it rough.
