Been a while since my last post, I've been trying to work out the nuances of Instagram as I've just set up a page on there too, the profile name is dejanewpalletablecreations, of course :P

There's been a few projects I have yet to post, this being one of them :)

Made this a little while ago now for an accountant's office to add a bit of rustic charm to the surroundings :)

What do you know about Pine Trees?

We all know about CO2 and the effects it's causing due to warming of the atmosphere. Did you know that pine trees are one of the best trees for being a carbon sink. That’s because they have a high number of leaves (or needles) and pores in the leaves giving them a high absorption rate.

A hectare of radiata pine trees locks up 4–7 tonnes of elemental carbon per year, which is equivalent to 15–26 tonnes of carbon dioxide absorbed from the atmosphere. Therefore a 1,000-hectare forest can absorb 15,000–26,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.

Managed pine plantations are a highly effective way of optimising the absorption of carbon, trees absorb carbon more rapidly during their peak growth period between 10 – 30 years of age. If a tree is not harvested, its carbon absorption rate slows after it reaches maturity, which is about 40 years for softwood, which is what pine is.

Sustainably harvesting trees in their early mature phase ensures that a forest’s carbon absorption rate is kept at an optimal level. Under a sustainable harvesting regime, forests have the capacity to store more carbon over the longer term than if the forests are left unmanaged.

If pine pallets end up as landfill this causes the release of greenhouse gases, namely CO2 and methane. Methane is an extremely potent greenhouse gas, twenty-five times more effective than carbon dioxide in trapping heat, which only exacerbates warming of the atmosphere.

By remaking the timber from pine pallets into something useful, practical and attractive, we're going a long way to doing our bit for the environment as harvested timber products provide stable carbon storage over the long term. And by saving them from landfill we're also saving potential greenhouse gases from being released into the atmosphere lessening the effect of global warming.

So if you've ever wondered why we specifically use the timber from pine pallets and what the benefits of that are, now you know :)

And if you already use our products, or plan to in the future, then you can feel satisfied in the fact that by having us make you something bespoke to be proud of you will also be doing your bit too :)

Here's a couple of little items specially requested. They're a couple of cubes for storage. As an experiment for a customer, one was made without any glue, and the other with glue, but used as minimally as possible. The purpose being to have as minimal a smell as possible due to sensitivities.

They were still finished in two light coats of satin clear, only because the clear we use is water based and very low in VOCs (volatile organic compounds), unlike oil based finishes, and also emits very little smell. Ideal for this application.

The Australasian Recycling Label

Are you confused with what you can and can't recycle?

Have you heard of the Australasian Recycling Label (ARL) ?
If not, have a gander at the link below which will explain everything clearly.

https://recyclingnearyou.com.au/arl/

In a nutshell, The Australasian Recycling Label (ARL) is an evidence-based system for Australia and New Zealand, that provides you with easy to understand recycling information when you need it most. It removes confusion, saves you time and reduces waste going to landfill.

Brilliant! 😃

Here's a great use for a whole heap of pallet timber, a feature wall for a man cave. It measures 3.3m high by about 2.8m wide. It was all cut and numbered to make it easy for the customer to hang it all :)

It's been a little while since I've posted anything on here, that's mainly due to spending time updating the website. It's still a work in progress, and will most likely evolve as time goes on :)

For now though I've changed the Gallery and the product pages, and tweaked a couple of other little things here and there. The main purpose being to make the site more useable for product information and enquiries :)

So far, out of the categories listed, the Outdoor Furniture products pages have been modified, the rest will also be changed over the next several weeks/months, time permitting :P

Have a gander at it, check it out and see what you think :)

From this post, bit.ly/VanBed_22Jan21, I promised I'd post a video demonstrating the van bed in action, well, it's taken me a little bit of time to finally getting to make this post, but here it is :)

Most of the video, bar the animation sequence, was kindly supplied by the customer :)

Sign the petition for a nuclear-free Australia

The following is from the ACF (Australian Conservation Foundation)...

"Starting today nuclear weapons are officially unlawful thanks to the landmark United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons coming into force. Remarkably, it is the first ever global ban on these weapons that threaten people and all living things.

The story started here in Australia, in Melbourne, 14 years ago, when a handful of people founded the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN).

Most of the people in the room were volunteers. One of them was my colleague and friend ACF Nuclear Free Campaigner Dave Sweeney.

Together they have grown to become nearly 600 people-powered movements from more than 100 countries united in a call to end nuclear weapons. The Australian Conservation Foundation is proud to have been a partner from the start.

Together they have won hearts and minds, and in 2017, the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize. Now they have pushed for, promoted, and advanced a global treaty that bans nuclear weapons, just as chemical and biological weapons, and landmines are banned.

Today's news, this incredible win, a ban on nuclear weapons, is a testament to what persistent, long-term people-powered campaigning can achieve.

But this story is not over yet.

86 states have signed the treaty in endorsement, and over 50 states have shown great leadership by ratifying and committing to the treaty. Australia has not signed or ratified the treaty. Now is the time to change that.

If you haven't already, sign the petition calling on our elected representatives to make Australia nuclear-free which includes ratifying the nuclear weapons ban treaty."

Please share this to everyone you know on Facebook :)

We must leave the uranium in the ground to keep our communities and the nature we rely on safe.

We're already two thirds into the first month of the new year so it's about time I made another post :)

Let's kick off with this, what does a VW Caddy and a stack of timber have to do with each other?

I can tell you it was a request from a customer I never expected :)

As I mentioned from this last post https://bit.ly/previous_29Dec20, there was a bit more to this story, and here it is, in all its brilliant colour :)

The actual colour is called Bimini Blue, it has a slight tint of teal in it. The photos don't do it justice, it's actually quite an appealing colour, and look great :)

It was chosen by my customer and just what they were looking for :)

A couple of months ago I was tasked to make a planter box with a security screen, another one actually, the first was back in January, this time slightly smaller and for an apartment balcony in Sydney. Anyway, the pics tell the story...
Not the whole story though, I'll post that next :)

This is a post Merry Christmas post, hoping everyone had a fantastic day with plenty of fun and happy faces 😊

It's been a bit of a strange year in so many ways, to say the least. It's been a struggle for many, and for others a prosperous one, all thanks to a tiny microbial little bu**er that has managed to change the world, to alter the course of nations and in an odd way has forced us to do things in a better way 😏

I hope you didn't indulge too much yesterday, if you did, today's a good day to take it easy 🙂

And no doubt cleaning up everything from the Christmas festivities will present you with quite a bit of waste, from drink cans and bottles to Christmas wrapping, empty boxes and even your food waste. Don't forget to recycle and compost and give the planet a happy Christmas too 😊

With a bit of luck, and good planning, 2021 will be the 2020 we all hoped for 😇 So hopefully I can say Happy New Year to you all, fingers crossed it will be just that 🙂

Ever heard of a doggy parking station? I hadn't before I got a request to make one for the XS Espresso cafe in North Kellyville :)

It's proved quite popular with the patrons and their pooches, and even a parrot :)

They also needed a few boxes as umbrella stands on castors for ease of setting up and putting away at night :)

This item is a simple and functional potting/firewood storage bench. It's been left unfinished as requested.
It will be used outside to face the elements, which isn't a problem, as long as the timber gets a chance to dry out between rain, this little bench will last indefinitely :)

Following on from the previous post, referring to the limited workspace and making them something to enhance said space. What they really wanted would have been too big for the available space. The answer was to make part of it foldable, allowing them to have the size they needed and making it easier to store when not in use.

What this is for is a kitchen island :) It's made to be the same height as the cupboards, and being on wheels, two with brakes, it can be positioned anywhere with ease :)

When folded the end section and swing away leg support are held securely in place by strong discreetly mounted magnets keeping everything tidily tucked away :)

And of course, it's made entirely out of pallet wood :)

Our Story - Deja New Palletable Creations

Welcome to Deja New Palletable Creations. Deja New Palletable Creations is a home based business on the Central Coast NSW recycling, yep, you guessed it, pallet timber, and giving it new life in the form of custom made indoor/outdoor furniture, decorative, practical and utility items for inside or outside your home, your workplace, your shed, or wherever you find a need.

This business has been up and running since January 2018. We were inspired to get started by all the interesting posts online about using pallet timbers for all manner of things, most of the info which is predominantly from the USA.

We thought by getting involved it would be a great way to make use of something that is otherwise just going to be reduced to waste and end up as landfill here in Australia. It’s not only environmentally damaging, it’s such a shame to see all that good timber just being dumped, especially when you consider the energy, and subsequent CO2 released into the atmosphere, that has gone into creating the pallets in the first place.

Year 2020 has brought many surprises, one of them being our family's pride & joy VW Caddy Maxi Trendine. The vision of aesthetically pleasing interiors~relaxing & trendy, yet fit for the royals to go on long drives & camping in, has been brought to fruition by Alan, the founder of #Dejanewpalletablecreations Alan's craftsmanship, 2nd to none brought to life the verstile & comfortable sofa cm bed with provisions for Robin, our cat. The timber he used for the frame is pine and the surfaces are plywood & pine. For the bed, the plywood used is eco-ply, for it has been sourced from sustainably-grown Australian and New Zealand plantation pine. The timber frame was recycled from pallets & the stain on the sofa bed is eco friendly stain and was mixed with a combination of Driftwood and Charcoal colours. Looking forward to camping in our VW this summer.
A repeat customer here! After the Father's day creation Alan did for me in 2018 (see my recommendation in reviews), I asked if Alan could help me with a slightly bigger project... a new desk! Keen for the challenge, Alan helped me design it to spec and pick the best staining and materials. He even came up with my 'wine rack' drawer system, which is perfect for an awkward corner that could nevertheless be used for storage. Throughout, Alan kept updating me with pictures and information, and while it proved to be a bigger challenge than anyone originally thought, Alan did nothing but problem-solve for weeks on end. It is now complete and delivered for free! The dimensions are all perfect, and the finish beautiful. I have a one-of-a-kind piece that will last a lifetime, and is built for exactly what I need. Photos to come once I've finished setting everything up!!
