PALLET PLATE RACK

THIS IS MADE FROM A PINE PALLET. THE DOWELS WERE MADE WITH A ROUTER ATTACHED TO MY LATHE..HAD TO MAKE A JIG UP TO FIX TO THE LATHE BEFORE I COULD ATTACH ROUTER TO IT TO MAKE THE DOWEL RODS. AS MY ROUTER IS OVER 45 YEARS OLD ITS STILL A GOOD TOOL.ITS NOT A PLUNGE ROUTER! ITS GOT A MICROMETER DEPT ADJUSTER ITS A BLACK AND DECKER ROUTER.I ALSO USE THIS TO DO BARLEY TWISTS WHEN NEEDED.THIS PINE PALLET WAS STAPLED WHICH WAS LUCKY.!AS MOST PALLETS DEPENDING ON COMPANY WHO MAKE THEM USE RING/ANNULAR NAILS.AND WHEN DENAILING THESE IT CAN TAKE AGES TO DO AS YOU GOT TO BE CAREFUL NOT TO DAMAGE THE PALLET PLANKS.WITH STAPELES AND THE RIGHT TOOL ITS EASY AND YOU DONT DAMAGE THE TIMBER.THIS PLATE RACK HAS BEEN PLASTI-COATED DUE TO IT BEING IN THE KITCHEN!.FOR THIS PIECE I USED 2 PALLETS WHICH WERE 3 FT X 2 FT. THE TIME CONSUMING BIT WAS MAKING THE DOWELS AS IT WAS MORE SETTING UP THE MACHINES THAN MAKING THEM. I COULD OF BOUGHT THE DOWELS ?BUT ITS MORE FUN MAKING YOUR OWN AND YOU ALWAYS LEARN BY YOUR MISTAKES WHEN YOU MAKE YOUR OWN PIECES.THIS PIECE WILL LOOK NICE IN AN OLD COUNTRY COTTAGE.!
