I love the whole idea of pallet furniture and garden accessories. Since I work for a tire manufacturer, old pallets of all sizes and shapes are quite easy to get for me…so why to spend money on something you can make and design yourself, make it look awesome and do it to fit your exact needs and ideas.
This is my very first pallet project. A pallet wood nightstands to match with a bed made of four atypical 90×110 centimeters, which I am about to start working on now.
The nightstand is made of a standard spruce pallet wood, which had a beautiful patina on, especially after a slight sanding with a belt grinder. The patina was the reason I originally choose this wood, before I decided to use a gas torch to “burn” (maybe “tan”…I don’t know) the surface of the wood and expose the fiber :)
The drawer knob I forged out of old car axis…
