Kids furniture made from a mix of pallet, scrap wood and branches

I have recently got some pallets, i have made an art easel which i stained and seats for the visiting kids from a mix of timbers, not sure what to seal them with. They will be out doors and i want the natural timer grain and color to remain. I am not a wood worker but have found i loved makeing these.  

Any help would be appreciated

Fantastic @artbypix. Many thanks for sharing your creative project with the Workshop community. It's great to have you join us. We look forward to seeing what you come up with next. 

 

I'm sure helpful members like @Brad and @DIYology would be happy to recommend something you could use to protect the timber and extend its life. We have many clever, creative and helpful members sharing advice and inspiration every day.

Looks Amazing, what a wonderfully creative use for pallets. Well done @artbypix

I would use an external timber preserver such as Intergrain Ultradeck. It’s readily available at Bunnings, easy to apply using a brush or roller, and water based so washing up is a breeze...

Here’s a DIY video of how to do it...

There is also a Cabots product for Garden furniture that is water based.

Feast Watson do an oil base as well.

 

Nice work!
