Patriotism is always in style - like with this Patriotic Pallet Adirondack Patio Set. This set took six pallets to make, about eight hours to build, and didn't cost anything!
Show your patriotism and make your own Pallet Adirondack Patio Set:
Part one - the table:
The feet are cut from pieces of a stringer, centering the arches. Next, a deck board was installed across the two stringers to stabilize the feet. I installed two vertical deck boards that held another set of arched stringer pieces. Finally, I installed deck boards across the top and rough-sanded the whole piece.
Part two - the chairs:
There are numerous tutorials available on the 'net that'll show you, step-by-step, including cut lists. But if you decide to build something like my Pallet Adirondack Patio Set, you'll have to pay attention to the special, subtle details of these chairs. I used stringer boards to make the seatback, facing the arches towards each other to create the fun patterns. Then I incorporated more of the stringer pieces, using them to support the armrests.
Finishing this Pallet Adirondack Patio Set:
Everything was rough sanded enough so that the furniture was comfortable, but was still rustic. I painted one chair in a vivid red, and the other in a blue. The table base was painted white, and then I painted my flag onto the top.
