1

Plane the back of the pallet wood

10 minutes

This is to get the back side of the wood smooth.

2

Miter the edges to wrap the wood and hide the cut edges

20 minutes

Miter the edge of the wood to have a 45 angle to attach the edge to make it look like the wood just wraps around the edge and hides the clean cut edge.

I glued and pin nailed then clamped these in place.

3

Pre-drill and Key-hole the back prior to milling

I drilled a 3/4" hole on a 45 degree angle for a stand. I also drilled out two key-hole slots for it to hang on a wall.

4

Cut out the inset and inlay

30 minutes

Cut out the inset where the inlay will be placed and also cut out the inlay.
I made mine so that the inlay would protrude out from the surface of the pallet wood back.

5

Make a video of the process...

15 minutes

Here is a YouTube video of the process as well.
