Hello Everyone, Here are some pictures I found of some boxes I made last year. The first box is Poplar, with the exception of the lid. I don’t know what species of wood it is. The second box is Ambrosia Maple. The Lid on this one is a little short. I had less wood than I thought. Thanks for looking.

Those look awesome I can’t believe those are from pallets! Any secrets for finding good pallets? Also what is your process for reclaiming the wood? Do you just cut out the middle sections, or do you try to remove the nails.

Awesome boxes, thanks for sharing!

they both are very nice. I do like the 2nd one with the way the grain is running through. At first I thought it was an inlay.

Beautiful wood, beautiful work!
Side note, is is only that I’m just noticing it now, or has LJs suddenly developed pallet fever? I’ve seen several front page pallet projects in the past week or so, and currently there are three pallet related projects/blogs on the front page. Pallet power!

A good source for quality pallets is the landscaping industry. Pallets holding stones, bricks, pavers etc are very heavy duty and are constructed with hardwoods.

Beautifull boxes. The Ambrosia Maple is spectacular.

As for the other box, the lid resembles wood I recently found in a packing crate. I wish I could identify it because it was really lovely to work with. Does this look like what you found?
