Wood Pallets: Building with Reclaimed Wood

Albert Foekema | HOUTVANMIJ

Albert Foekema from the website HOUTVANMIJ is Dutch carpentry who specializes in building with recycled wood pallets to create fabulously functional benches, planters, storage chests, composting bins, trash can hiding mini sheds and a lot more.

He has amazing talent that may inspire others to see wood pallets as a way frugal way to find wood and create.  His motto is ” Everything is something”. Albert has a suggestion towards projects made from wood pallets:  “Wind and weather will affect wood, if you do not want that effect, you can paint, varnish or stain the wood every two or three years.

Yes, the website is in the Dutch language but the picture gallery is huge with tons of great ideas.
