I finally went to the dark side and used some pallets for a project.
I am starting to sell some of my etsy shop items in a local store on our towns’ main street. I wanted a unique table to display the items on that was rustic looking.
I used some 2×2’s to frame the top, but otherwise it was 100% pallet wood, lots of glue, and brad nails.
Wasn’t crazy about working with the pallet wood. Have to be willing to let the wood just be as it is. I didn’t let the wood touch anything buy two cheap blades on my miter and table saw.
I also made Woodworking for Mere Mortals miter sled. The only difference was a I used aluminum t-track as the runners. Much less frustrating than using wood runners and getting them to fit perfectly. The sled was quite useful with all the miters!!!!
Not sure if i should put a stain or clear coat on it. Any guys out there using pallet’s have any suggestions? The deconstruction of the pallets almost paid off for not having to do a normal finishing process!
