Here is the finished image first. Baby pallet – it’s so cute
Board thickness is entirely up to you.
This one has been sitting around for some time.
I thought this one was the one but It cracked badly, So I decided to use the pallet behind it.
Crack is bad
Don’t crack mmkay
I used a saw to to cut the wood from the pallet.
Did three boards by hand
And then I realized I could cut the rest with a sawzall I had recently purchased.
Pallet tops and bottoms
Theses pieces are for the top and bottom of pallets. I forgot to include pictures of the middle boards. They are the same process only cut a little smaller than the top. Also the pallet is measured 7.5″ X 7.5″ so just cut every piece to 7.5″ inches in length.
Putting the pieces together to see what it will look like.
A little bulky but I like it.
Use the 5 min as directed on the instruction and glue up all the pieces of the pallet. Or you could use nails but I didn’t want to risk splitting the wood. I forgot to add the picture of the glue up but its pretty simple. Place glue at all the points each board comes in contact with each other and then place a weight on top of it.
Glued! and ready for nails.
I spent half an hour looking for this tiny hammer. I just had to use it for this part. I found some tiny nail/tacks that look like pallet nails. They don’t go all the way through the wood, just there for looks. Place two nails at each point where the boards meet.
