Crafting with Wooden Crates & Pallets Review & GIVEAWAY

Want to get in on the trend of re-purposing wooden crates and pallets? In her new book Crafting with Wooden Crates & Pallets author Natalie Wright shows you how with 25 Simple Projects to Style Your Home. You will learn creative ways to turn ordinary wooden crates and pallets into useful, attractive and inexpensive home decor. Natalie guides you through building, painting and finishing a variety of clever do-it-yourself projects including making your own crate. Each design includes a list of the supplies you will need and step-by-step instructions accompanied by plenty of full-color photos. Most of the crate projects in this book use 12 1/2" x 18" x 9 1/2" crates. It's a standard size. Other projects use pallet wood or vintage crates. As discussed in the book's introduction, you will need to assemble some basic woodworking tools. These include things like a measuring tape, hammer, screwdriver, drill, saws, safety goggles, sandpaper, wood glue and more. I've included a few of my favorite pieces below. The 160 page paperback was released August 15, 2018 from Dover PublicationsGet your copy below!
