Pallet Bars

Gorgeous Pallet Wood Rolling Bar

This pallet wood rolling pallet bar took me a while, but I feel it’s worth it! It’s a show-stopper in my backyard, and I can proudly say I made it!

How I made my pallet wood rolling bar

First, I built a basic bar, framing it out with stringer boards to create the basic shape, and scrap plywood to create the shelving. I cut down deck boards to create the smaller pieces to support the shelves as needed. Next, I finished out the two sides with more deck boards but didn’t fully finish out the front. For the front, I used corrugated metal that I aged for that rusted look* on the front side. I trimmed out the front and secured the metal.

The bar top

For the bar top, I used various tones of deck boards, mixing darker and lighter woods. For this bar top, I knew it didn’t have to be perfect. Cracks, imperfections, and nail holes were all okay because I was going to bar-top it.  Once I installed the deck boards, I applied the epoxy coating, carefully following all the directions for prep and mixing. The epoxy coatings are a good option for that wet look, or for embedding objects into your project as well.  Many say that one pour is the same as 40 or more coats of varnish. Some are UV-resistant as well, so do your research. Follow all the safety precautions, too.

Finishing it off

I added a set of locking casters, installed final trim, and then added a bar foot rail. We installed a small glass-front can cooler refrigerator.

Editor’s note: There was no information provided for the rusted look of the corrugated tin. It can be purchased with various patinas, or there are ways to strip the galvanized coating and rust it quickly, as explained here: Faux finishes can be done with painting techniques as well.

Engineer, Co-founding partner of 1001Pallets. I earned my Engineer degree in Aeronautics & spatial telecommunications and navigation systems from INSA (Toulouse, FR). I worked as a sub-contractor for Airbus Aerospace & Defense for more than 12 years; I was the guy who worked on the black box inside the aircraft that give its exact position, useful if you want to land in the right place :). Since September 2015 I'm full-time working on & I'm passionate about recycling, vintage & refurbished things; I'm always amazed by the creativity of people around the world and how with their two hands and some imagination they can transform almost anything into beautiful objects, I also love to explore flea market in search of the "unfounded" object. I'm also a kind of a geek, and I'm behind the technical aspects of &, so if something is not working as it should, it's all my fault, and you should contact me for debugging purpose. In my spare time, I love going in the countryside, hiking in the mountains, drinking a delicious glass of wine with my friends and traveling to explore the beautiful places of this earth and meet other people and cultures.
