So, I busted some pallets apart and started planing the boards down. I found one board, that folks on here, called ambrosia maple. I didn’t have enough to make anything significant, so I tried my hand a some small items. I think I prefer making larger items, it is easier to hide the imperfections.

The first two are all maple, the legs on the third one are oak strips I had left from ripping a board down.

I also like tea light holders! Just check out my projects. These are unique due to the wood you found!

Isn’t it wonderful when you find a treasure in trash? Pallets out of ambrosia maple what a good find!

Nice save. Ambrosia maple is a favorite of mine but I have to order it since we don’t have it in the south.
