Step 5: Design the Turkey’s Body
You should have some remaining pieces of wood laying around. We used one of the middle sections of the pallet and designed a body and face for the turkey.
After cutting out the body look around the floor for some little triangular pieces of wood. They would have come from the 45-degree angles you cut out for the feathers. This piece can be used to make a beak for the turkey.
Step 6: Attach All of the Pieces Together
Using Titebond glue the body to the front of your feathers.
Then glue on the beak.
Step 7: Create a Stand for the Turkey
Going back to the pallet, use the thicker blocks of wood from the inside for the turkey’s legs. Cut the “U” shape evenly on both sides. Use extra blocks from that same piece of wood to provide the turkey additional support in the back.
Use Titebond and nails to secure the legs in place.
Step 8: Finish
Now the turkey is ready for its new home on your front porch. You could go a step further by paint or stain it if you want.
Add some paint or stain if you want and your new pallet turkey is ready for its new home on your front porch.
