This pallet project was so much fun. Using a pallet and some natural materials I collected in the woods, using a few hand tools I spent less then $50.00 on. I made my own wood stains and treatments form thing most folks have laying around the house, the only thing purchased for this build was some glue and Brushing Lacquer. thanks for checking it out.

I just saw the video earlier this morning and subscribed. One of the other groups I subscribe to had a link to it. It’s very nice i like the finished product. Wish there was some way to make that birch bark pop a little more. I like that flower in the center a lot. mush have taken a bit of time to shape those little pieces.

Awesome! The birch can be accentuated fairly easily.. just dont apply aging treatment to it and it would jump right out. I want a more vintage look for this piece.

Looks like a unique antique table. Awesome, and a total cost of about $8.00! Was that ebonizer that you sprayed on?

I like the overall Idea of the 50 dollar workshop! Mine is totally funded with the projects I made (except from some very lovely donations by a special lady) and look what’s up there on the hill in Portugal now! This project is awesome… soon I can start making things like this. I collected branches, pieces of tree etc. from the woods around here (most pine) and a lot of eucalyptus that’s been laying around to dry for almost 3 years….

I will certainly going to make some of the jigs you showed in the video’s…. and maybe turn some table legs on my tablesaw to! Keep up throwing this (non) budget ideas at us!

Izzy, amazing table, great craftsmanship, really great with the home made jigs, I think it goes without saying, you have an extremely creative mind and a fabulous gift for woodworking.
After watching so many of your videos though, I have to ask why you bought so many of those “Bro?” Shirts? LOL. Just kidding. Great Youtube Channel. Thanks for the show.

Great project and video. You make it look so easy. Any concerns about using twigs or branches that were recently cut? Do you have to let them dry out before using?

The twigs have to be dry before they are used. Wet ones will cause gaps after they dry.

You are incredible Izzy! A mind that works in both mechanical and artistic modes. A great looking piece.

I watched the video and subscribed. My You Tube is 529 Films. I love the table and the video. Great job. I love anything having to do with making your own jigs, fixtures and tools. I also love working with pallets. So this project is right up my alley. Can’t wait to see more.
