This is a Rustic, antique Japanese style stool made from old pallets. I have used the best of construction techniques such as dovetail and mortice and tenon joints for sturdiness. Finishing was a problem as I wanted a used, knocked around look. Pallets don’t finish well anyway so I guess I achieved what I wanted. Its a bit more blotchy than I really wanted. The original design had a solid top but I didn’t have the wood so compromised with slats laid out in a solid looking way.

You know, people absolutely love this kind of stuff, it’s all the rage now. This is a great example and a beautiful piece of work. Nice job on recycling the wood.

Pallet wood is one of my favorite materials. Great design and use of the thin deck boards… love it!
