Some people ask, “Why use reclaimed, crappy wood?” And I realise as I do this… there’s a real beauty to it. It’s taking a scar, and turning it into a thing of beauty.
I was at work, minding my own business, well. Cleaning out an old business, actually.
Now, tell me that doesn’t look like a table. Work got busy again, and the idea of making a table stagnated for a few months.
Some nice pallets came in, Douglas Fir and in decent shape.
So I got to work breaking them down, planing them, finding a pattern that looked great, as a tabletop.
I needed some form of chair for my deck. And there were copious pallets around, so I slapped together a few pallet chairs
I sold the table as we had to move before I could finish the top.
All in all, this was a very fun project that I would do again in a heartbeat. I learned much, and would definitely do things differently next time:
