Picture of Pallet Bottle Opener

What inspired me?

Pallets. What can't you build with them? Well, more importantly what can you build with them. These bundles of scrap wood can be seen as an eye sore, however, I believe with a little cleaning up, they can be beautiful. I have seen a design much like this. I don't claim to have designed it. However, I wanted to try and make one myself. This is how I did it.

What will you need?

-Pallet length (basic size is 30mm by 70m)

-jig saw or band saw



-2X pallet nail

-hammer or just use these same pliers

Step 1: Step 1 - Marking and Shaping

Picture of Step 1 - Marking and Shaping

First, I took my time to sort through the giant collection of pallet wood I had found over the past week and chose a slab that I liked. This slab was very clean and had a great tint to it. So, I grabbed it and marker on the general shape I wanted. I didn't pay much attention to this because it is easy to change by adding curves. Anyway, I grabbed the jig saw and cut out the shape. I decided to go quite slow to reduce tare out but this didn't work.
