Arrow Reclaimed Pallet Wood Nightstands Build

I had a whole bunch of pallets laying around and some plans and decided to save money and build a couple night stands for my bedroom. I documented the whole build. Let me know what you think?

I also build furniture from pallet wood. I have only been doing it for a couple years. I am a new member and just uploaded some pics in my album. Was wondering if anyone else here builds with pallet wood.

Love the build, impressive!

I've recently started working with pallet wood (been saving it up for about a year now and just got a planer). So far. I've only made a few scroll saw puzzles and a few clocks with my wood, but will be working on more once the weather cools down so I can get back into the shop!

Outstanding job. Outstanding video. And, if I'm not wrong, I only saw you use a measuring device once. Awesome. I wish I could do that. Great reuse of wood. I love it.

I'm usually not a huge fan of projects with pallet wood because they usually end up looking like they were made out of pallet wood, but your night stands look great!!

Very nicely done. Enjoyed the video. What jointer planer is that? Interesting design being able to plane below the table.

I must say, your hands move much faster than mine! Lol
Could I suggest hearing protection. Now that I suffer from Tinnitus, I always notice when people don't.

Very nice looking! You must have nice clean pallets. All the ones I come across are embedded with grit from years of being skidded around on factory and warehouse floors, they dull up woodworking cutting edges fast. Excellant video!

I find that you can get the best pallet wood from stores that have no reason to recycle them to ship out goods. Places like Sherwin Williams (or any paint store) get pallets of paint then throw them out. Same goes for a local window manufacturer and flooring company. They are more than glad to have you take them away. In my experience it has only been used once and is in pretty good shape. The local window manufacturer also discards some nice cutoff wood for woodworkers to pickup for free.
