Patchwork, Scrap Wood Cross

I knew I saved all of those little scraps I have cut from other colorful wood projects for a reason.  
I made a cross out of pallet wood first.
I then fit and cut all of the little pieces,
and used a nail gun to attach them.

  10. When you made the origial cross out of pallet wood, how did you attatch the horizontal pieces to the vertical? I just stumbled on a pile of scrap lumber in all different colors and would love to make one for my own home. Thanks Diane.

  11. Totally LOVE this project! I wish I had some scraps! Life to the full, Melissa @ DaisyMaeBelle

  12. I love love love love LOVE this! I'm working on my first ever pallet project right now and OI... disassembling that thing was a nightmare! I love the projects people do with them but now I have a newfound appreciation for the process. so does my aching back. If you have any tricks on making it easier I'd love to know!

    1. Hey Rebekah,
      You may have already figured this out, since this comment was posted a couple years ago....but wanted to let you know that we are working on our 1st pallet project as well. The easiest way we have found is to use a sawzall to cut right through the nails

  13. This reminds me how my patchwork of bad stuff becomes something amazing when covered by the cross.

  14. You are such an inspiration!! I pinned this pic to my home page and named it "inspiration". You inspired me to get in the shop and create my own art. THANK YOU!!!

  15. Any chance you have the exact dimensions?? One of the hardest parts is getting that right.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
