Zac Darr from River of Life Church in Eastland, TX brings us this wide pallet wall.
They disassembled 65 pallets. They sawed off both ends of the pallets, leaving only 1/3 of the nails remaining. It took a team of 5 people 3 hours to complete the disassemble.
They constructed five 6’x12′ walls with 16″ studs and mounted them to the existing stage, free standing a foot from back wall. Lumber was under $200. They used a nail gun to mount pallet planks. It took 3 men, 2 hours to complete.
They hung black curtain from ceiling to floor on the back of stage. Then they hung 18 Edison lights that they strung and constructed themselves using 5 black extension cords of 100′. They cut the cord into sections and measured each light hanging down for placement. The Edison lights then plugged into a standard dimmer pack.
They attached 10 clamp lights with 65 watt flood bulbs to a 2’x2′ board nailed into stage. They stood up perfectly straight. They removed the aluminum bell as it really didn’t fit the design. The clamp lights also plugged into a dimmer pack. They used Colorado Tour bars to light up the new wall.
