Connecting pallet boards

Amy W on Nov 13, 2015I recently made several smaller "blanks" to use as canvases for rustic styled paintings. We cut an extremely used pallet apart using a reciprocating saw cutting through the nails. I wanted to leave the rusty nail heads for character. We cut the boards to the desired length with a power miter saw. (Important : remove nail heads that are close to where you might want to cut. These could be very dangerous if the saw hits them. Don't worry, you can glue them back in the holes) Once the boards were cut, we cut some scrap wood long enough to span the desired number of boards. I had some 1/2" x 3/4" stock. If you want to make a larger sign, you might buy some lattice strips and cut them to length. Position your boards, face down, in the arrangement you are looking for. Spread a think layer of wood glue on the back of your scrap wood and place on the back of the pallet boards, joining the boards together. Two strips should be good, but use more for a large sign. Secure the boards with a brad nailer or staple gun. Once the wood glue dries, your sin should be good for indoor or outdoor use. The wood glue adds a lot of strength.Helpful Reply
Lori Johansen on Nov 13, 2015For wall art, I simply connect them using a thin slat of wood (2)...sometimes using wood glue in between the pallet pieces if I want no gaps. Easy peasy!Helpful Reply
