Pallets dyed blue or red. You’ll be tempted to take them because the wood is thicker but they’re covered in a preservative called methyl bromide which is highly carcinogenic. Not sawdust you want to be around nor wood you want in your house or garden.
Avoid them

HT means heat treated which pretty much does the same thing but kills any bad stuff in the wood. Usually these ones are used for food stuffs. They’re ok to use.

Dime, the lamps on the last few pages are fucking beautiful.

You need to get some kind of online store up for those. I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

Ah thanks. Yeah they’re fun. Could probably make you one and ship it. Insane postage tho.

Thanks. I took some green ones. I don't know what that means, but I just need to ship some stuff out of my house.

Looks awesome, dime. But, is that a fire pit in the middle of all that wood?

Tis yeah. It’s brick though all the way down so they only really ever get warm to the touch. Not a fire hazard at all. Well the bush on the back wall has been a little scorched but no harm.
Plus I have a hose right there if anything happened.

Sanded this back and gave it a fresh coat. It came out good. It might need one more but I’m afraid it’ll go too dark. Thinker

Everyone: "Dime, you gotta be careful about that fire pit surround by wood."

Dime: "Nah, I'm good."

Thanks pal.

Just realised my neighbours hate me. Many slamming windows.

Wait Til they see next weekend when my pals come over for a long weekend end of summer party. Last one went on for three days.

I’ve saved something like 5 tonnes of pallets from landfill over 5 or 6 years. I’m not worried at all about burning off cuts and dead wood.

So this is almost finished just need to glue the two halves together (this is just a dry fit)
Plan is to pour a clear glass epoxy resin for the top. Does anyone have any experience with that stuff? Any advice or tips would be welcome. This is all endgrain so that’s killer for absorbing stuff so I have to seal it all before I do the epoxy. Also gonna gently scorch the top with a blow torch before I do any of that. It makes the grain and rings pop.
But epoxy advice welcome if anyone has any

Ah thanks man.
I’ve just glued them together and have it standing against the wall and one end is a good 2cm off, as in the legs aren’t touching the wall as the bottom two are. Just my luck.
Easy fix though once it dries.
