Found this plan in one of my Canadian Home Workshop mags (pic2) and thought i would try to build it with pallet wood just used one sheet of ply for the carcase.

I will post a blog with the process and pictures from start to finish when I get some time.

Thanks for looking and keep on building….

Beautiful job on this cabinet.
The fact that you used pallet wood is a outstanding reuse of material otherwise used as firewood at best.
I admire your effort ,well done .

Thanks for the comments guys! @sandhill I just used some leftover paint from the house. Benjamin Moore Butter Yellow leftover from our kitchen island and a black leftover from our front door.
I am still going to give it another coat of black in a month or so followed by a waxing.

Funny but in VA where I live now I have a hard time getting pallets but in FL. They are stacked everywhere.
