Just in case you’ve just stumble upon my website, you should know that in my spare time, I’m a hobbyist woodworker.

DIY Reclaimed wood Christmas tree

I had some old pallet wood laying around, waiting to get a new life in a way or another, and since we will be doing limited photo sessions for the winter holidays with children, I thought it would be great to have a reclaimed wood Christmas tree as a prop.

All other boards I’ve measured to be 1 inch less than the previous. Because the pallet wood is rough, sanding it’s necessary in order to remove splinters.
