Introduction: Pallet Wood Gift Basket

Picture of Pallet Wood Gift Basket

I make a "gift basket" from pallet wood. This will be used for a Christmas gift basket for a neighbor. This neighbor has been supportive of my woodworking in many ways. The snowman in the video is made from some maple firewood he gave me. The grape jelly is made from another neighbors grape vine as he lets us have the grapes that grow on it, the wood butter is a great way to maintain your wood items in the kitchen. Home made bread is so good! It is fun putting these things together!

Merry Christmas!

You were right on not taking so long! I didn't get to it until this weekend but I got two done in just a couple of hours, including tearing apart the pallets. I still have a little sanding to do but this will be great to give my parents some wine we got them for Christmas. I changed a couple of this up since I had thicker peices for the ends but it came out great. Thanks for the idea and instructions!

Hi Chris, very good idea. How did you get the font on the wood?

That is just on video! It is not actually on the wood. I used a website to edit the photo.

This is a very cool idea and will likely take a lot of my time this weekend!
