  • Solid build! The lights are a great detail as well.

    • Thank you very much. The cafe lights are definitely keepers but the rope lights are questionable to me.

  • Impressive! It really makes a statement and adds visual interest to the space. The clock is the perfect finishing touch!

    • Thank you! It was surprisingly easy once I put my mind to it. Lol

  • Nice wall! I am in the process of making my own, but a slight bit of difference in the way I'm attaching things. I purchased 3 brown 4x8 sheets of brown board. I cut them to fit the wall, laid it all out on the floor (wow does this take up some space) and working on getting the pattern I want. I will attach the brown board first with my nailer and then plan to use liquid nails to attach my slats onto the board. I used a thin tongue and groove board I found at lowes in a package of 6 each. I chose this because I am getting older and can't lift like I used to, otherwise, I may have used pallets. Mine looks very similar to yours with a slight color difference. I can't wait to get this room done!

  • Thanks for the comment. I did the same thing! I laid it out on the dining room floor so I could get the pattern I wanted. I just stained and white washed some of the panels to add a little bit of difference in color. I nailed them all to the wall with a BRAD nail 1.5in. with no glue since the panels were so thin. It stays very secure as long as you hit some of the studs. I bet your wall will look great.

  • This is so cool! Such a creative build. You've combined the best of recycling, engineering and carpentry. Impressive work.

  • Nice job on the conversion. I competed in local trials in the late 1970s on a Bultaco and had a lot of fun. Good luck on your new adventure with a brushless motor. It should help in overall performance. I am looking forward to seeing more about this.

  • Very cool! Really digging the details - the paint and stain work, the stars. Nice!

  • I love these. Any detailed instructions for those of us just starting out?

  • I didn't use any plans, but the idea is very simple. Decide what size/dimensions you want and frame up a simple box. Measure the outside width of the surface and cut thin slats that width then stagger them. I use wood glue and brad nails. For the inside the lighting is entirely up to your imagination. I use copper wire led wrapped around wooden dowels. I have a bigger one here with better pictures that can give you an idea of how to make one.
