Modern Pallet Wood Bench

My wife and I received some old barn wood from her grandparents not too long ago, and I didn’t really know what to build with it. Well, a project came to mind and it ended up being the perfect use for this material that easily dates back more than 100 years. Watch the video above of how I made it and check out the written article on my website for even more details: www.bruceaulrich.com/blog/pallet-wood-bench

Step 1: BACKGROUND

I always like when I see people use old barn wood in projects. I know, this look can be overdone at times, but I still think there is something very cool about a rustic piece of furniture. I don’t know that I want every piece that I own to look that weathered, but I do like it some.

We have a front porch, and then we have what we call our “side porch.” Many times, this is called a “friend entry.” I don’t know if this is a Southern thing (I’m in Mississippi) or if it is derivative of the French styling, since this is technically French Acadian, but we like it. It is a smaller, more intimate entrance to the house that we, and most of our guests use. We wanted to have a bench on this side porch so we could watch the kids ride their bikes in the cul de sack down the hill. We can see them from the front porch, but the bench on the front porch is right in front of the baby’s window, and often the older kids are out there while he is napping.
