This is really cute and the color of the wood and paint goes nicely together.

Love it!!! Especially the color blue…and not just because it’s Robins egg blue! LOL. It’s bright and cheerful and a great use for those old shutters!

Julie, I have been offline for most of the summer- so I missed the final version of this cool shutter table. It turned out lovely!

Again with the pallet wood. Can you tell me how you joined the planks? I have a Chinese bisquit
jointer, but I don’t have great luck with it. I now have a thickness planer that will help though.
I get access to tons of pallet wood. I usually only keep the red and white oak. I got some cool
unknown stuff that was shipped from the orient. Wish I could find some more of that. I was
like a cypress or something. Love the cabinet, I’m stealing that idea too. Is that pine or white oak?

Pete, When I need a wider board than I have I just use glue and clamps and glue edge-to-edge. I don’t use biscuits myself, although many people do. I really don’t know what wood it is, but I don’t think it’s pine. My wood identification skills are poor! (You may be able to tell what wood it is from the blog where there are more photos, Part 1 is here)
