Another request from my wife. It matches her shoe closet.

What are you using to smooth out the boards and align them? Are you planing them or just ripping them on a table saw and sanding them? Are you screwing them together or nailing them? Great work and great ideas!

Oh and I just got done building a work bench and used “Antique Oil Finish” on it; love it. I can imagine how it would make the wood on your shoe rack and book shelf pop after a few coats – just for some ideas

Very Nice. I am accumulating a stack of knocked down pallets to do something similar.

I definitely prefer staining to painting but these were requested by my wife. I use combination of, glue, screws where they will be hidden, and nails. Depending n the piece, sometimes I hide the nails, sometimes I let ‘em show.

I like this natural finish best, too. The shades of the woods are awesome. It looks like art to me ! Great job, E.D.

Very nice look to it. Best part is that it is recycled wood!

Looks Great! Beware about pallets though, they have nails and staples embedded and also, you don’t know what was shipped for years on that pallet. Could’ve been some highly toxic chemical that will take years to evaporate out. I like the idea of recycled lumber, but with pallets, it pays to be choosy….

I love seeing what people make out of pallets. Looks great. I’m interested in doing something similiar. Did you plane these or just cut on the TS and sand?

Grinder with a sanding wheel. Then sanding.
