Pallet-framed Stencil Turns Metal Into Wall Art!

As a woodworker, I usually have a pretty significant supply of offcuts and scrap material laying around. I used pallet wood for the body and some scrap 1x2" cedar for the frame around the stencil. I used various techniques, including rabbeting and pocket joinery to complete this Pallet-framed Stencil Wall Art. This piece would look great next to a vertical garden or small planter!

Upcycle interesting old metal pieces into unique pieces by building a project like this Pallet-framed Stencil Wall Art.

This frame needed rabbiting out a groove for the 1/8" thickness of the stencil to rest in along the edges of the pallet material. I used glazing points to hold the stencil to the backside of the pallet material. I used a 1/4" straight bit mounted in a fixed-based router in a router table to do this procedure. Using pocket joinery, I assembled all the components and framed it with the 1/2" cedar using glue and a cordless nailer with 5/8" nails. I used a combination of steel wool and vinegar to stain the pallet wood and a mixture of General Finishes Ebony and Weathered Gray water-based stain for the cedar frame. I then sealed the entire piece with General Finishes Flat Out Sealer.

This Pallet-framed Stencil features pallet wood, scrap cedar, and a beautiful metal stencil.
The finished project looks great with the various tones of wood, along with the stunning colors on the stencil!
