Here are two boxes I made out of some pallet wood. They sold as soon as I showed them. Thanks for looking.

Excellent Work, as always, my Friend…
I’d be interested to see how you made the scorpion too!!

The scorpion design is really nice!

I REALLY have to get some masking and try this spraying technique.

What kind of paint/stain/etc…. are you using?

Great work!

Very cool boxes (especially like the scorpion). I think you all have got nicer pallets in SC than we have in Ok. I noticed the grain all runs parallel in the framed top on the first box. Nice!

The most interesting wood I ever got from a pallet turned out to be Birdseye Pine! Very well made boxes! Was the scorpion done on a CNC/laser, Leith?

I make alot of stuff from pallets. Steady supply of them where I work. I got a couple last week that had hickory ( I think) runners. Not sure what to make with them yet.
anyway,,,Leith, very nice work. I really like the reclaiming idea, you made something very nice out of wood that would have been tossed out.

Thanks for your comments guys. I masked, cut, and spray painted the scorpion on the second box. I use Krylon brand spray paint. More to come.

As with all of you previous boxes, very impressive. The detail on the scorpion is awesome.
