The hardest part was finding pallets the same size and shape. My best source for pallets is a flooring store. A lot of their hardwood flooring comes from Asia and South America. It appears that they make their pallets from whatever wood is around, in this case, sub-quality hardwood. I think the front pallet is Ipe, a very hardwood. I tried to sand and finish it, but it was too hard, and I gave up. I like the rustic look anyway! The bar top is plywood with stain and varnish. The rim is pipe insulation with vinyl stapled on. The whole thing is light enough to drag back into the garage when not being used but is held together with only three deck screws if it has to be transported.
The chair is mostly two intact pallets cut down on one side and fastened together. It turned out far more massive than I expected. The easiest way to move it is with a hand truck! I am going to replace the seat and back with wider ones and make it a two-person chair.
Beautiful indoor bar made from 3 big recycled pallets.
I made this bar from cedar wood but made the top from reclaimed wood. After I had sanded the top smooth, I painted some of the boards and then used a two-part clear coat to finish the top.
