Garden Table From Pallet with Bees Wax & Shou Sugi Ban Waterproof Wood Finish

  • 2 pallets

  • medium

  • 12h

  • $20

I have built this garden table using only one pallet plus a few spare parts from another. I also show how to make your own waterproof wood finish (wood stain) using beeswax, linseed oil, and mineral spirits. I use a combination of the traditional Japanese Shou Sugi Ban method of burning the wood and then applying the Bees Wax/Linseed Oil mix, which creates a totally waterproof and scratch safe surface.
