Needs color... hmmm....
I experimented with the gears to see if their shape would get stained into the wood- didnt work.  Ill try again with another project.

Finished my pallet shelf today.  I used a homemade ebonizing stain and an oil finish.  The project was virtually free.  The pallet was a dumpster special- the stain was made from white vinager, salt, steel wool, rusty metal and time.  I oiled it with olive oil.  The only things I purchased were the fasteners for hanging.  

I'm definitely going to grab a few more pallets- This shelf would be a great way for my son to display his toys and lego creations...
