Pallet Tealight Coasters

Introduction: Pallet Tealight Coasters

About: Electromechanic with a woodworking hobby who interesses in random projects...

A new idea to make some Coasters for tealights.

Although the process is pretty big, i enjoyed doing it as wood/metalworker. :-).

You can also put an actual design in it if you put the nails in a special order. like letters and symbols. sky is the limit!

Step 1: Step 1: Watch the Video+ Get an Idea.

In the video we go through the entire proces.

-First we find some wood.(in my case from old pallets still in nonrotten state!)

-We glue some of the slats together with normal woodglue and let them dry under pressure of clamps or a benchvise.

-Next we cut off the crooked pieces an make a nice beam of it.

-Make a size you can handle on the drillpress, or drill holes with a handdrill.

-Hammertime! if they fit too easily, use some extra glue. we don't want the rings to fall out ones they are cut. (or having the rotating while cutting)

-Now it is time to saw it all up. you can use a Evolution Mitersaw with a multiblade on it, or use a metalsaw. dont use a regular saw that can't cut metals like brass and aluminium.

-As an extra i dremel out the side to look more aggressive or stylish(whatever you think of it)

-A layer of oil and its nice and shiney (yes, oil and fire don't mix. just a wood. but i don't spill my lights :D)

-Put them on a nice place an get the tealights on it.

thx for watching,

have a nice evening full of tealights!

Friendly greetings,

Jörgen Börg
