Many hours busting up pallets. Probably won’t do it again.

Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. :-)

It is unique – certainly an eye-catcher! I like it, looks to be build very well and should last as long as you want it to. Nice job!

I like it!

I used to, many moons ago, work for This End Up furniture company on the early shift, making bunk beds and love seats. So your bar brings backs some memories…like when I was young and could hop out of bed at 4:30 am and spend the morning doing physical labor that would probably kill me now…

I love the rustic look…and can very easily see myself saddled up to it with a nice brown and lots of annoying old guy stories to tell to whoever might (or at least pretend to) listen to me…. ; )

Enjoy!

Really cool looking and a great build. I envy your tenacity in dismanteling the pallets, not a fun job

I like that rustic loo. Now you need a kegerator.

Busting pallets, lots of work, been there. The bar looks great, rustic and fits nicely on the porch.

Looks good and many people can appreciate the effort it took to make the wood workable.
I did the old LOL when I read “probably won’t do it again”
Well done.

For a guy who generally can’t stand pallet furniture, I kinda like it. It seems to work with the location and the brick backdrop really well, and build quality looks great!

I used to have stray pallets shaking in fear when they saw me approaching!

My Son Toby and I made many pallet wood projects.
