Introduction: Pallet Wood Jewel Box

I make lots of stuff out of pallet wood, from planters to sheds but here we have a small box made from a few planks taken from small 2 x 3 ft pallets used by paper suppliers. I think the wood is sycamore but I may be wrong there. The construction is all miter cut and all parts glued together the top has a stone inserted for decoration, a local flint with a hole through it found on North Norfolk coastal beaches, supposed to bring good luck, when found if thrown away your luck goes with it.

Step 1:

  1. Single use pallets used by paper suppliers can be a nuisance for printers and print finishers, a finisher of a magazine I am and editor of www.themarlpit.co,uk is pleased to see them go to good use. Lots of various materials are used, plywood, mdf and various timbers so they are a good source for pallet breakers albeit small stuff. If you have a printers near you it may well be worth a visit, if you dont ask you dont get!

Step 2:

The box has an insert tray made from ripped down pallet planks and and little insert made of strip glued together to form slots that rings and ear rings can be lodged in.

The box is finished by waxing and burnishing - easy to do and looks ok on the bedroom window board..
