  1. Projects Outdoor Christmas decorations

    Sorry for the lighting. They do look much better when lit up later in the afternoon and evening. The only reasonable shots of construction show how simple this really was. I laid the 2x4 uprights on the shop floor and then placed "enough" salvaged pallet boards into "about the right"...
  2. My take on the Twisted Bookcase

    Step one: Acquire raw materials (pallets) for free. Step two: Break them down and rough mill the wood. Step three: Glue ups. Step four: Initial assembly. Step five: Completion.
  3. Simple DIY Pallet Tombstones

    I made 3 pallet Tombstones, to go with my skeletons and Wooden Coffin. These are easy to make with limited tools. I used a couple of wide pallet boards, cut them off about 15" long. Then I found some scrap pieces, to nail them together. Took a old 5 gallon bucket, used it to trace the round top...
  4. Boot Box Bench from a pallet

    My daughter needed a place to store her stablehand work boots outside (they don't smell so good after a day at the stables). The boots needed to be protected from rain and critters, but with air circulation so her boots can dry after wet days. Armed with a pallet and half a Saturday, she put...
  5. Family Name Crossword Wall Art made from pallet wood

    So as a new/noob woodworker, I have been using Pallet wood for my projects. I had a couple people request these Crossword/Scrabble wall art with their family names so I tried it out with pallet wood. Hand painted letters by paint pen. I learned a lot and spent a lot of hours using the orbital...
  6. second pallet bowl

    same pallet second glue up and turning. I did a bead rim and a thicker wall this time, no blow out.
  7. side table out of ash

    Snagged some ash pallets from a neighbor doing a remodel. I started with side table plans in Fine Woodworking and scaled down the top to fit an odd little corner by the closet. With the smaller top it didn't really make sense to put a drawer in it. I successfully resawed a board by hand for the...
  8. height chart

    My first entirely hand tool project; a height chart for my nephew for Christmas. I found an oak pallet by a dumpster. End to end dovetails got me a little over 6' of length. Trying to hand plane knots in oak was exhausting, but educational. Finished in several coats of Danish oil natural and...
  9. Pallet Wood Painting

    My wife went on Pinterest and I got to spend the weekend making this for her instead of getting the shop better organized! Oh well, shop projects are never ending anyway. I'm not the most experienced painter, but luckily she wanted this one to still be a bit rustic looking. First pallet...
  10. Free standing mirror made from pallet wood

    I had some heavy oak pallet wood sitting in my garage, not the top slats but the middle 3 pieces that the boards get nailed to. When my wife would straighten her hair, she would bring this huge mirror in the living room and prop it up so she could straighten her hair and watch tv. So, she asked...
  11. Recycled Pallet Campaign Desk

    This desk was made for a client using a recycled pallet from a local construction site. The pallet was made from Austrailian Pine, some type of cedar as far as I can tell. Very beautifully raggy wood textures. The client wanted something with a "campaign twist" on it, so I added the canvas drop...
  12. Two Drawer Band Saw Box from Pallet Pine

    June, 2011-I came across some pallet lumber with rather thin sections of pine. After salvaging the wood I planed them with my motorized hand-held planer. Then glue and clamp made a nice block for a band saw box. My own process recently for doing these glue-ups is to put the nicest or most...
  13. Minimal tools pallet chair

    This project is minimal tools, as all I used was a jigsaw and a drill. It can be made from only onw pallet check out the DIY video.
  14. The first Pallirondack Chair

    So this is where the name "pallirondack" comes from. I made my first Adirondack-style chair-and everything else I've made so far-from 100% recycled pallets. I found a design/plan online (thank you California Redwood Association) and modified it to work with wood from pallets instead of cedar...
  15. Medicine Box

    {Forgive the bad photography} This box is made entirely out of pallet wood. The top has some nice spalting and the bottom is a nice thick piece of something that resembles walnut. The sides are a nice shade of olive and the whole thing is finished with pure tung oil. I didn't know when I made...
  16. Wine Rack from Pallet Wood

    A friend of mine showed me some wine racks that were made from old pallets. This is my interpretation. I do think it could look very nice if it were made from nice wood, but some people - my wife included - prefer the rustic look, and it was cheaper this way! "Wine Tasting" was engraved on the...
  17. Tree Branch Stool

    This is my Tree Branch Stool It is made from a tree branch that i found and dried out and the top is made from pallet wood. The total cost of this build was about £0.20. Great for putting your brew on or just to sit down somewhere.
  18. pallet coffee table

    I was inspired by a fellow lumberjock on here, unfortunately can't remember they're name, so I hope they don't mind me using they're design as inspiration! but apart from the legs (2×4) I made the whole top from a pallet, detailed, filled, planed, sanded, handcut and sanded some more… then some...
  19. Wall Coat Rack with Handy Drawers

    Wall Coat Rack with Handy Drawers Reclaim Wood and Pallets can always make nice projects. Even the defects can be interesting if you like this style. I have done quite a few projects out of reclaimed or pallet wood and I will post them for those who do like this approach in woodworking. This...
  20. Laundry Basket Dresser

    By no stretch of the imagination is this fine furniture, but this laundry basket dresser will help my wife keep the laundry room organized. At least that's what she told me. Who am I to argue? Overall, the piece is made from recycled pallet wood-mostly oak-sanded and ready for staining. The...
