Justin Johnson from Elevate Life Church in Jacksonville, FL brings us these multiple uses of pallets.
- (4) 4’x8’ 3/4” Pine wood plywood panels were used as the foundation.
- Strips of pallet wood were deconstructed and applied to the Pine wood plywood with 1 1/4” deck screws
- Strips were applied in a staggered pattern and then trimmed on edges of the Pine Wood to make square edges.
- They made sure to vary the darker and lighter pieces of wood.
Wood Strip Lanterns
- (5) strips of flexible door trim wood were used to make these lanterns.
- (3) strip were screwed to together vertically with small bolts and nuts and then spread open.
- (2) strips were screwed together horizontally with small bolts and nuts and then spread open.
- The vertical strip sections and the horizontal sections were then screwed together to make 1 completed lantern.
- They finished the lantern off with a chorded Edison Bulb.
Wood Pallet Christmas Tree
- They used 4”x4” timbers to create the base and vertical foundation of the tree.
- Then they used base boards from pallet wood to make the horizontal foundation of the tree.
- Once the foundation was in place, they gave a volunteer an air compressor and a nail gun and told him to have fun.
- Once completed, they topped it off with a custom wood star and vintage colored Christmas lights.
- The tree took around 40+ pallets to complete. At some point they lost count of pallets.
Wood “Jesus” Marquee
- 3/4” plywood was used to cut out the letters
- (17) 1”x4”x14″ pine wood planks were then air-stapled to the plywood horizontally to create the plank look. Once the planks were air-stapled to the plywood letters, they trimmed excess.
- Once the letters were fully done, they air-nailed smaller pieces around the edges to give the marquee look.
- They finished the design off with some Edison inspired Christmas light strands. Holes were drilled through the letters and the bulbs were inserted from behind.
- Completed JESUS marquee was then hung by chain and eye-screws.
