Over the last few months I’ve been doing a lot of string art working my way through my huge stack of “pallet wood”
Red Sox – Hickory inner section with a jatoba base bath. Put together with pocket screws and glue and finished with gloss lacquer
LL – All of my “pallet wood” was all collected from shipping during my 4 years I worked for Lumber Liquidators. I made this one to give to one of my coworkers there to display in his store. A mix of ipe, American Cherry, tigerwood, acacia, teak, and some mystery stuff. Finished with gloss lacquer. I put at T&G on each piece and glued it all together to give the board the look of flooring.
Watering Can – My mom has always collected watering cans. I made this one for her for Mother’s Day. Not sure what the wood is, its appears to be a softer hardwood, likely from Asia or South America. For this project I had just gotten a biscuit joiner which is now my preferred way to make up my panels Finished with a stain and gloss lacquer.
Love – My first project. Made on jatoba and finished with caranuba paste wax.
Home Sweet Home – Tigerwood center with a trim of maple around the perimeter. Finished with gloss lacquer.
All of these get horizontal keyhole slots along the back for easy hanging.
