My latest pallet project.

Post by AL37 »

Its been a while since I have had chance to knock a few pallets to bits, over the last few weeks I have had a spare hour here and there so decided it was time to get my hammer out. And Mrs Al was wanting a new garden table so I have saved myself a few quid too.
A couple of years ago I was gien a load of wood to burn and those legs were amongst it. I knew they would come in handy one day. )t'

Great job there Al )t' , is that a piece of slate in the center of the table?, and is the wood waxed/polished or varnished?.

Thankyou all for the kind words. )t'
It was nice to get some wood working tools out again. At work its nearly all metal and fiberglass which is fun but it can get a bit tedious.

Yes SB thats slate in the middle, it will be handy for the hot roasting tins etc when they come out of the wood fired oven. I varnished this table top as I think its a bit more durable than a waxed finish. )t'

My hubby hates pallets, however in my new job I have unlimited access. Last month I took 2 to my dads house, 2 days later we collected the " spare wood " dad had, and hubby made a spare run with it.
