Description

Upcycle that unwanted wood! The New Pallet Bookupdates a unique woodworking book with 25+ new ways to take a stack of pallets and put them to use.

Join home improvement author Chris Peterson for a complete guide to deconstructing and repurposing pallets. This edition, with tons of new content and more than 50 projects and ideas, features everything from dead-simple builds like pathway pavers and a mug holder to more challenging projects like a recycling bin holder and bathroom magazine box. It's safe to say there's something for everyone—and every pallet. Some projects, like the raised bed, showcase the pallet. For others, like the fireplace surround, you'd be hard-pressed to guess the wood was free.

New projects Include:
  • Central AC Unit Screen
  • Window Shutters
  • Bike Rack
  • Potting Bench
  • Strawberry Box
  • Toss Across Game
  • Wall-Mounted Sneaker Rack
  • Towel Rack Ladder
  • Crafts Center
  • Beer Cooler
  • Tool Carrier
  • Firewood Holder
  • Bathtub Tray
  • And Much More!
There's no shortage of inspiration to put free wood to work and keep pallets out of landfills. Simple step-by-step instructions, as well as parts lists and images of the completed projects, make sure you will build it right the first time. Peterson also dishes out must-have pallet knowledge, including the basic tools for breakdown, finish options, and key information on pallet safety. It's a one-stop pallet workshop!
