Deutsch Pallet tables. I’ve already built one pallet couch table, which i varnished with linseed oil and therefore looks a bit rustic with its hemp rope handles. Btw., you get a lot of details how it was built there, so here i’ll tell less about the “basics” but rather the differences and a few minor improvements. Here we go, pallet coffee table Mk.2. This one was for a friend, she […]

Deutsch After part one of the Steampunk desk construction, now on to the second and last. And a lot of detail work, but I’m getting ahead. The plan: a desk made of of two halves, each with a “computer cabinet”, one speaker, one display and a dashboard – the first with the amplifier and the small TOR server, the second with the workstation. Technically, both computers in the respective cabinets, […]

Deutsch The Ikea side table was not what i really wanted for some pen&paper role-playing by the fireplace, something bigger and more appropriate was needed, and I was inspired by a “floating pallet coffee table” i saw somewhere on the net and thought, the dfirection is right. A wrong direction would have been these “pallet, glass plate atop, rollers underneath” stuff which is seen often. I’d like something “pallet only” […]

Deutsch Very simple, but charming despite of, or actually because of that: the pallet bench/tablöe combination i saw outside Wuppertals Utopiastadt (“Utopia Town”, link in german), an alternative work/life area in an abandoned railway station. The palette bench is composed with (well, many) plain and simple stacked pallets, so is the table – two pallets of a somehow unfamiliar variety (they remind me of the U.S. pallet with continuous surface […]

Deutsch Between all the cuddly furniture stuff, a few pictures out of the RPG/LARP corner. What do you do when you like movies like Mad Max and role-playing games like Shadowrun? Those true at heart and strong at will build their own post-apocalyptic scenario and use it for play, fun and party. In such a way, the Gran Paradiso Roadhouse Club was built by some of my ex-colleagues and when […]

Deutsch A known phenomenon: when you start to work with pallets, you start to see them anywhere, I had a pallet glassed look through my neighbourhood already, and still i found quite a lot more pallet furniture just a short walk away. First, the “Kugelpudel” – in german, its the rhyming translation of “ball poodle”, selling the best icecream i ever had, with its upcycled furniture. Then, there was the […]

Deutsch Even if you build pallet desks that are designed mostly for work and the like, children may become interested into the idea of having an own pallet desk. In the case we’re talking about girls, pink would be a valid option for the demanded colour, and given my personal faibles for some ponies (although I’d never prefer Pinkie Pie to Rainbow Dash) I hardly can resist. Requests: the table […]

Deutsch For the record: Triangular pallet desk, part 1. It took half a Sunday afternoon from here to completition, quicker than I thought. From an old bed, i had some chipboards left i used for the substructure. You can use something like that, i also thought about cutting some old IKEA Ivar shelves in form, but maybe they’ll serve better otherwise. These old bed boards were of no use for […]

Deutsch I thought i wouldn’t get another chance to test the useability of palklets for building tables, but i was wrong: my wife wished for a pallet dwesk, too, only smaller as the first pallet desk and, well, triangular. Pallet material is currently available and after having defined the form and size, i could begin with the actual work. Even better: i had a reason to buy the long wished-for […]

Deutsch My first approach to pallet desks is recommended only partially. I’m happy with the end result, but this neends not to be the case with everyone. From the aesthetical point of view, everything is perfectly fine, as it is for the practical advantages of pallet furniture in general. On the other hand theres the known phenomena that you always have to work with a little tolerance regarding precision with […]
