With the variety of wood species used as pallet wood (see what kind of wood are pallets made of) have you wanted to combine two different wood types for a unique look? This video teaches you how to obtain Two-Toned Pallet Wood Projects! Create a two-toned effect and use this technique as the basis for outstanding strips projects, or for patterned projects.
Mix wood types and create stunning Two-Toned Pallet Wood Projects – this DIY Video Tutorial Shows You How!
You need standard woodworking supplies – a good-quality wood glue, clamps, and a few power tools. You can use this technique without having a router. Cut the glued wood into two-color strips and stick together to create amazing projects.
This technique starts with basic steps. Use good-quality wood glue and apply it according to the manufacturer’s directions. Clamp together and allow the wood to dry completely. If you want tighter joints, sand, and plane the wood before gluing together.
Clamp the boards in place firmly and evenly along the surfaces. Allow the wood proper drying time.
When the wood is routered or trimmed for an exposed edge, the two tones begin to show. When the wood is stained and sealed, the contrast shows even more clearly.
Using a laminate technique, create striped, striped projects by gluing different types of wood together, then slicing them to whatever thickness you require. This idea is a contrasting-tone project that highlights the beauty of the different colors and grains of wood.
