DIY Geometric Wood Art Table

FEATURED

Lately I’ve been seeing the coolest geometric wood art all over the place. Frankly, I am all about it. I have been drooling over the countless art pieces I’ve seen come across my feed lately, and decided it was time to make my own. So, being that “Woodworking Wednesdays” (also known as, my day off which is spent in the shop) is a thing until the end of August, I took a few hours today to create my own geometric wood art table. It cost less than $40 to make… and it’s pretty awesome.

DIY Wooden Drink Cooler

Fourth of July is right around the corner, and I’ll be celebrating America’s independence in the most patriotic way possible – a backyard BBQ and listening to the Hamilton album on repeat (okay, maybe that’s just me).

I spent some time in the shop this week creating a distressed, patriotic beverage cooler to show off at the party I’ll be attending. It only required a few simple tools and two afternoons to create!

My favorite projects in the whole wide world are pallet projects; mostly because they are easy to find and easy to use. Also, a lot of you guys seem to request different variations of pallet art, and I am all ears. To be perfectly honest, this was the scariest project I’ve ever done. Not because it was hard or anything, but mostly because it is on YOUTUBE as my first video tutorial (cue me screaming… and not in a cute way, but in a “what did I get myself into” way). While I’ve done similar projects like this in the past, wooden letters have been specifically requested. So, I thought, why not make this my first video/blog experiment? Please tell me I made a good choice…

For those of you that follow my blog pretty closely, you’ll know that I love using pallet wood in my projects. I love pallets for lots of reasons (you can read about my obsession a little bit more here). In continuing my series of guest blog posts that aim to answer some of the questions you guys send me, Aaron Massey is joining us this month to discuss pallet safety. A super important topic for all of you upcycler’s out there! So, without further ado…
