Reader project: Bosch Home Improvement Competition

Here's the first entry for this year's Bosch Home Improvement Competition submitted by Joanne Thompson. This is another project that uses reclaimed timber pallets, this time to make two bedside tables.


Joanne converted two wooden pallets into bedside tables for her home. The finishing touches of a dark ebony stain and varnish are still to be done but you will get the idea.



You can see that all the screw holes have been filled in with wood filler and the bedside tables have been nicely sanded down for a smooth finish.

For finishing I suggested that Joanne rub down with Woodoc antique wax to keep them looking natural. Another option would be to apply a whitewash finish for a beach or country look.
