My Uses of Pallets: Unique Picture Frames

My intent is to produce frames that both complement my paintings and utilize some ingenuity and originality of design. After disassembling and sorting the pallets into species and sizes, I visualize a design utilizing the character of the wood, the distress factors that I want to include or eliminate. Sometimes I leave the wood in the rough sawn configuration, while other times I surface and true it up for gluing. I incorporate various hardware as decoration as well as assembly methods. I love the weathered look of the wood with the natural stains but admit to enhancing the distressing somewhat if needed. I feel we are reusing material that would be wasted by eventually ending up in landfills and giving a second life to material that has been discarded.
