I made this printer stand from Lowe’s clearance stack and some pallet wood all pine, body is made from 1×1’s the top is from 1 1×12 cut and joined, and the shelf is from pallet wood, the black on the base is stained with India ink, the top and shelf are stained with a red tint stain, and clear coated with polyurethane.

Nice. Thank you. I must learn more about staining with ink. Do you ever experience saw dulling from the pallet wood? How do you clean up the wood so as not to have the dirt and other impurities mess up your cutting tools? I really like to recycle throw aways like this.

Hi Nomercadies, I normaly only take clean pallets from my company, and I have an old blade for my radial arm saw, I don’t have a table saw yet, but I cut out where the nails were then plane the left over pieces, I like to do 20 or 30 at a time so I get many that are the same thickness.

Nice stand, came out great. I use a lot of pallet wood in my projects, I find if they are dirty and I hiot them with my belt sander first it keeps the planer knives nice and sharp.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.
