This was a completely random project. I had a vision of displaying my Christmas ornaments at my craft show on a pallet wood Christmas tree. I started cutting away and ended up with this beauty. In the end, I didn't even use it for my craft show because it was too big to fit in our truck that was packed to the gills. I guess I'll just have to actually use this for my outside Christmas display this year, which is just fine with me!
Bracing the back
Building the base
I used various sizes of pallet wood and cut the end angles to 22.5* with my miter saw. Then stacked them and braced them on the back. You can see in the video I created below exactly how the whole thing came together, as well as how I made the base so it could stand up.
It's definitely not perfect, but it's not suppose to be! It's a rustic look so perfect is not the goal here.
