Wood Crafts

I don't do as many wood crafts as I used to, me and the saws just don't get along anymore :)

We always get lots of pallets at work, and I took one home awhile ago with the intention of taking it apart and making something with it. Well, the saw just didn't want me messing with it, so I left the pallet intact and painted a flag on it!

I already had some paint here, and I used my star framelits to make a stencil. After letting it dry, I put some water proof sealer over it so I could leave it outside. It now sits on my porch.

The next project was suppose to be an outside bench made with the head and footboard of a bunkbed that someone left at our rental. Well, things weren't going my way again, so I used the slats of the bed and made a star! The pieces are just screwed together at the ends, and I wrapped some rope around them just for decoration. I coated this with water proofing also.

So, those are my two not planned projects I made last week. I am happy with them both despite the troubles I was having :)

Thank you for having a look!

Wow Pam I can see you with the saw, way to go, creating things. The star is a great idea as well, and the box looks great how you added the stripes and stars. Fantastic recycling.
