Homemade Pallet Wood Christmas Tree-100_1173.jpg

My wife decided she wanted a table-top, pallet wood, Christmas tree to decorate for the upcoming, annual, Women's Health Resource Library </title> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1"> <title>Women's Health Resource Library : Milbridge, Maine – Advancing and promoting the health and well-being of the woman, her family, and her commu Table Top Christmas Tree Auction. She found several pictures of various examples online, and presented them to me. She also told me she knew I was busy, BUT.......ya know...."when you can find some time".......

Fortunately, I'm fairly adept at reading and deciphering "chick code" and I knew what she was really saying was: "Get your ass out there and get this project done ASAP if you know what's good for you!"

I'm also well aware of the old adage: "If mama's not happy, no one's happy!"

Being a reasonably sharp guy, and having a keen sense of where my next hot meal is coming from, I decided to put aside the duck coop build for the day and concentrate my efforts on Susan's latest quest.

I had pallet wood kicking around, and I decided to use lapstrake construction for the tree. I set to work in earnest, and the result is shown below in the video. The tree measures almost 24" wide and is 36" tall, overall.

I know it's been a whole day and and a morning, but the long wait is finally over! Here it is folks! The premiere showing of the pallet wood table top Christmas Tree (The movie). You won't find any Hollywood superstars in this short film (under 4 minutes), and I'm pretty sure I won't win an Oscar for my performance, but you still might find this entertaining after a fashion.

Maybe it will inspire you to get out in the shop and make something similar. Hey! It could happen!

If you start feeling a little bit "artsy-fartsy," you'll find this a fun and easy project to take on.
