This was my first pallet project. I received a shower door on this pallet and didn't want to throw it out. Since it was my first, it took me a while to take it apart. That was the hardest part. I just designed it as I went along, and it only took one whole pallet. I have since sanded it and sealed it with several coats of polyacrylic. A smooth surface and no splinters! It will now hold up to the elements much better. Plus, the bright, satin seal brings out the grain in the wood and darkens it just a bit.
