I did this on a pair of boots and you can hardly tell from a few feet away. It lasted about eight months and I did it again. Finally: the boots are worn out and have become my yard boots and it does not matter. For those on a limited budget and a bit of time in the evening, this will stretch out a few dollars. Keep it up.
Wonderful video: nice job. Nice cutting boards. I picked up a couple of pointers that will speed up my next job. Pictures attached are the potato/onion bin with a cutting board on wheels I made out of oak pallet wood over the summer. I have a clear 3/8 inch thick reclaimed acrylic sheet from something I took apart a while ago to cover when cutting as it looks too nice to cut on. When not in use the sheet tucks away in the cupboard. I don't have an electric planer and got a good workout hand planing all the boards. Planer is on the wish list.Thanks for the inspiration.
Thanks for the knots. Knots by Grog is a pretty comprehensive site that covers a lot of knots for many purposes.
That looks fantastic. I love building stuff from pallets. There is some nice oak to be found in pallets. The stained nail holes often add some nice character to the projects. Right now I am working a rolling (onion, potato) oak counter with an oak end grain finish that is about 16x16x36 inches. It tucks away in the corner but can be moved anywhere in the kitchen where my wife needs that little bit of counter space. Thanks for the lovely video.
I was trying to talk my brother in law to turn his old trailer into a garage/shop when he put in a new one on his farm. You could put a garage door one one end and put planks on the floor where the tires would be so you don't drop though and still have room in the other end for a shop. That would make a fantastic man cave. Have fun and keep it rubber side down.
