I made this arts and crafts s tyle settle (couch) a few years ago. I kinda wish I had put an arch on the back rail. As usual all made of pallet wood. The finish is two coats of amber shellac.

Pallet wood? Really? Excellent up-use of material!

I like it the way it is. A long arch wouldn’t have had the same radius and might have looked off. I love your stuff, and I know how much work recycling skids is.

I use nothing but pallet wood. Where I work we get lots of real large pallets that dont have a lot of top boards. So they are easier to tear apart. They are usually red oak. I have so much wood piled up here I dont even bring them home any more. I have developed a technique for pulling the nails out easily. You would think pulling a twist nail out of oak to be impossible. It took a while but I figured it out. It is absolutely NOT worth the effort, but it is the way I have decided to do it. I would like to think of myself as an artist/craftsman ( neither is true though), and using pallets is my “medium”.

Well skidiot, it looks great even without the arch.

Have your say...
