Build your own sustainable and trendy furniture out of wood and recycled pallets. Over 30 ideas to try out home with little equipment needed. Each video presents a new DIY upcycling project to inspire to creating something new out of something old. The Upcycling Wooden Pallets program is broken down into chapters each containing videos on DIY projects for the home both inside and out. Working with wood and repurposing pallets is easy, cheap and environmentally-friendly since it reduces waste, so rest assured that you won't need to be a woodworking expert to try out these simple tutorials! Nevertheless, we recommend that you start off with the easier projects if you are new to DIY and woodworking in general, before moving on to the more complex projects. Beware that working with wood requires the use of tools which are often heavy or sharp so exercise caution when handling them and always make sure that you have the appropriate personal protective gear, notable work gloves, eye masks to protect you from splinters and a face mask - especially when using chemical products. Work in an uncluttered, well-lit, well-ventilated environment and keep young children well away from tools or unfinished projects. The program is structured into three main parts: preparing your wooden pallet, learning how to give old wood a new lease of life, and finally making furniture and other household items. Before attempting a project, make sure that you have the tools and materials you will need which are given at the start of each video. So, what are you waiting for? Let's get creating!
