Wormhole Pallet Bar With Zebra Butcher Block Top!

  • 6 pallets

  • hard

  • 40h

  • $250

I used six pallets (some oak with GREAT wormholes), some strips of zebra and ipe wood for the butcher block top, cast iron legs from an old bench, epoxy and a strip of LED lights for my wormhole pallet bar! The bar is 36″ wide, 42″ tall, and the top tier shelf is 58″ tall. The whole bar is on 4″ wheels.

The cabinet is 21″ tall, and the shelf between the cabinet and bar top is 12″. The depth of the bottom cabinet/shelf is 20″. The wine racks are movable/stackable and are 12″ cubes with open ends.

I pulled apart the pallets and removed all nails. I milled all of the wood except for the pieces I used for the doors. The wormhole wood was so fragile that I had to fill with epoxy to hold it together. I then planed it and ripped it to the desired thickness. I joined all of the planks with biscuits and assembled using a pine 2×2 inside the frame.

Take the time to finish your project and get results like this Wormhole Pallet Bar.

I used 60, 150, and 220 grit and then the epoxy areas and pallet bar top with 400 grit. Then I buffed the epoxy areas with rubbing compound and a buffer. I started the finish with a coat of teak oil. After that, I mixed some Golden Oak and Jacobean stains with more Teak oil. Then I applied more oil with a rag, wiping off the excess. After curing, I mixed Teak oil and matte poly and wiped it on the top facing surfaces.

I found some oak pallets with a lot of character and wormholes.

The wormholes add a lot of visual interest to the bar top.
