Old project, new post.
This project turned out pretty well, although it was pallet wood.
Time and labor intensive,IMHO, for not much yield.
Small Lazy Susan bearing, small turned spindles were purchased.
Finished with polyurethane.
Project completed long ago, still can’t identify which species, Help! What species of wood does this look like to you.

One of the best looking palletwood items I’ve seen!
BTW the wood looks like Palletus Cratensis species to me… ;)

Yes using pallet wood can be time intensive, but we collect a lot of it and then create according to what is usable doing wall shelving and painting the majority of it. And then offering for sale and giving to family etc.

Have your say...
