How to Build Pallet Wood Herringbone Benches

I’m not a big fan of pallet wood.  If you’ve followed my work for any period of time you know that I typically don’t build from it.  It’s just not my cup of tea.  However I was commissioned to build a pallet wood project for a customer.  She wanted two benches in the herringbone style.  This style was extremely popular a few years ago as I write this in 2017.

If you’d like to see how I built the benches check out the video below.  And if you’d like the plans to build these benches yourself you can check those out here!  Herringbone Bench Plans.

How to Attach A Table Top

I’m often asked how I attach a table top to the base of the table.  If you’ve been woodworking for any period of time you know that wood expands and contracts along its width.  Because of that you need to attach the top in a way that allows it to move as it needs to.  That is why I use table buttons that I make myself in my shop.  Want to see how I do it?  Check the video below.

Building Walnut Strip Doors

I was commissioned by a client to build several pieces of furniture that incorporated walnut strips, specifically a few credenzas and a table base.  Those projects while challenging were nothing compared to these doors and the issues I encountered building them.  Check the video below for details.
