From the photos on the front of the book, you would think that the projects shown would be in the book.. Some of them are, but not all of them. The ones that I was most interested in were not. Just pictures inside with no instructions on how to assemble them. I'm not an idiot as far as trying to figure out how they were done, but I think it's a little missleading.
I purchased this book based upon the link provided in the homesteading/survivalism on facebook. I wanted the plans for the outdoor furniture in the article. The furniture was not in the book. VERY disappointing.[...]
When I got this book earlier this week, I have to admit I was a tad bit disappointed because at first glance, it seemed sparse as to ideas, the number of projects and instructions. But as I delved further into the book, the more substance to it I saw. Chris Gleason covers this subject very thoroughly, from choosing the right kind of pallets to be used (there are certain pallets to be avoided, for those have been chemically treated and therefore not safe for use indoors; others are too splintery or full of nails to be safely worked with, etc.), to taking them apart for your projects, the tools to use,with an in-depth overview of what to use and what they're used for and so on.Furthermore, Mr. Gleason provides several projects in the book with detailed, concise step-by-step instructions and lists of materials needed for each project, such as a mirror frame, a coffee table, an outdoor loveseat, chair, and even an ukele! He also peppers the book with interesting factoids such as, "Old pallets can be ground up to make insulation, landscaping mulch, and construction materials", or "Due to sustainable logging practices, the number of newer trees each year exceeds the number of harvested trees".I also love the photos of various objects that were made with wood pallets, such as an accent ceiling, bed headboards, wall art and others that are creative and meant to inspire. And inspire they have... I am itching to get going on some of these projects, and so will you. This is a must-read if you're wanting to make things for your home and garden easily and very cheaply.
I got this book hoping that it would provide some great inspiration and directions for pallet projects. The beginning of the book has some really cool projects and inspiration photos, but no directions for these projects. The back of the book has directions for a handful of projects, none of which are all that exciting compared to the first images. I was disappointed to say the least. The book was shorter than I expected and really only contained a few projects with directions. Completely replaceable by using Google. Waste of money.
Don't be fooled by the cover of this book: out of the items shown on the cover, only one is detailed in the book (the mirror). There are several shown inside that are never explained either.Basically the only reason I didn't give this a single star is that the items that were given directions were well explained and contained good diagrams.
I have ordered several "pallet" books, but this is by far my favorite! I love all the great pictures and ideas of things to make! I was happy at how quickly I received the book! The seller gave excellent service, and I will be purchasing from this seller in the future!Thanks!
This book is exceptional. Lots of good ideas and great instructions. It really helps to explain the differences between good and bad wood to work with. Great gift idea for the recycle guru in your life
Lots of useful and attractive projects that have just enough refinement to disguise their origins. A great way to maker itms with some permanent use from wood that is good,but otherwise would be destroyed.
