First project after more the 20 years. Hardest part was to disassemble the pallets. Nice surprises, red woods (oaks and others), different types of pines and above all, hard, hard wood to work with… Lost a couple drill-bits but it was a great experience.
Initial purpose was to make an entrance bench but it took a life of its owns and became larger then life. :)
The underlying structure made with pocket holes. It has almost 1 pound of 1 1/4” of finish nails. Sanded with #60 paper just to avoid the splinters and coated with lemon oil and wax. Turned out to be very good and solid. Had a blast. Other projects on their way.
Thanks to the observations of my new friend jacob34 I have to make some clarifications. Product to coat is named Feed-N-Wax by Howard. I was only able to find it at HomeDepot. It turned out to be orange oil and beewax.
Nice to be here…
P.S. Thanks Jacob and good luck with your project…
