This was the first dresser that I made from a huge oak pallet. All the details are the same as the second except all the exposed wood is the recycled oak. You can read the details in the post on the second one.
This one was for my youngest daughter and was completed 3-4 years ago.

-- So many great colors in woods and so little time.

Excellent work! The dressers should last a lifetime. What a great way to re-use materials that otherwise might have ended up in the landfill. What do you think the pallet was originally used for? I’ve made a number of things from hardwood pallets, most of those were used to delivery large pieces of equipment.

Fine recovery! I like the shape and overall design.

Can’t imagine it used to hold a few tons of sacked concrete or some other non-glamorous items 8^)
