BEAUTIFUL PROJECTS + TREES SAVED
Lumber prices are soaring, and deforestation is a rising concern, yet millions of pounds of perfectly usable wood are dumped in landfills every year. Wood Pallet Projects shows how anyone can upcycle salvaged pallet wood to create truly one-of-a-kind projects.
Maverick craftsman Chris Gleason combines sound woodworking techniques with a hip designer's sensibility to unleash the limitless possibilities of the common skid. Inside you'll find inspired projects for rescuing and repurposing pallets. Some of his pieces celebrate the rough, edgy character of the material, while others are crafted as fine furniture. He shows how to construct both indoor and outdoor furniture in a variety of styles, along with other useful items, such as a birdhouse, a toolbox, and even a ukulele.
There's plenty of nitty gritty here on working with pallets, including where to find them, how to process them into usable lumber, fasteners, sanding, and the best finishes (if any) to use. The author provides important advice on how to make sure your pallets are safe. A colorful gallery of finished work provides further inspiration for green crafting.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
On the positive, the book has with a good section on tools and an interesting photo gallery of pallet project ideas. On a not-so-positive side, the photo gallery pretty much looks like photos from someones Pinterest board, but printed in the book. At least on Pinterest, it may link to instructions on how to build - here it is just a picture. Seeing those project possibilities, then the actual projects chosen to instruct leaves a gap. I am disappointed and plan to return the book.

I was interested in making the chair and the chest on the front cover only to find they were not part of the project list.
I have to say the projects that are included are very well thought out and stylish but not what I was hoping for.
