I’ve made a bench from pallets before, but this time, I was commissioned to make four of them, so I thought I’d make them differently and more refined.
I wanted these pieces to not be “rustic”, but rather nice pieces of furniture, made from reclaimed lumber.
Check out the video below for how I did it, and leave a comment if you have any other ideas for how to make furniture that’s “reclaimed, not rustic.”
