I recently stumbled on this slideshow video on YouTube that shows a bunch of different uses for old pallets. A couple photos of my tiny free house under construction are there too.
One of my readers sent me a few photos of some furniture he made from pallet wood. It’s amazing what you can do with scrap wood with a little patience, time, and the right skills.I really like the variety of different finishes he’s used on them. Some look like antique furniture and in others you can see the pallet wood origins a little more clearly. I think you’ll agree that this is amazing stuff and that there really is something poetic about pallets… I’m not just making it up :-). Thanks again Ed!
It was a bit hot this past weekend but I got to spend a couple days working on the house. I had planned to put more boards on the roof but realized that I needed to first finish the eaves. They took a bit of time to build but I think they look pretty good, so even though I didn’t get as much done as I’d hoped I’m still happy with my progress. I came up with the 16×16 diamond window in both eaves on-the-fly and plan to make little opening windows for ventilation.
