  1. How to make an Up-Cycled Pallet wood Sliding Barn Door

    My kids are avid gamers, and since we moved in to our house they have had their gaming rigs setup in a finished portion of our basement. The problem was that the basement had be modestly finished with simulated wood (read ugly) paneling and the bi-fold door that separated the space from the...
  2. My "Pain in the Butt!" Pallet Bed Project

    As many of you woodworkers can attest to - if your significant other asks, your significant other gets! That was the case with this project - a first for me working with pallets. The girlfriend wanted a rustic pallet bed frame, so I was off to the races planning and sourcing my materials. Now...
  3. Beautiful Work Bench from Pallets

    So my sister-in-law has found herself in need of a hobby. I, of course, suggested wood turning because I find it to be fun, creative, and almost therapeutic at times. She is very interested and gave me the go ahead to start collecting the things she would need for the new hobby (she will...

  5. Crib Built from Pallets

    I was short on funds and was about to have a son. I was able to get some big pallets used to ship large generators for cell phone towers. I looked through magazines and catalogs until I decided on this design. I liked the look, but every one I had seen was made so cheap and out of thin wood to...
  6. Reclaimed pallet wood cutting board (mostly white and red oak)

    The series for this project - here is quite in-depth, so I won't recreate it here. I'll just sum up… I got a stack of slats from a pallet from a local bearing shop all cut up nicely in a stack of 14"-16" pieces. Sorting them, I found many that appeared to be kinds of oak. I ran these over the...

  8. Just Another Old Door, Or Not.

    I got my hands on a few old doors, some were antique, some were not. Based on the holes for the knobs, this one appears to be from the 40s or 50s. I didn't know exactly what I wanted to do, so I took the top panel out and put some shelves in the hole. The rest was just trial and lots of...
  9. Pallets - to - Planter Boxes (for Free)

    I always see lots of pallets on Craigs List for "free". I've always wanted to build something out of them because it seems such a waste to throw them away or burn them. So, this is what I came up with. I know I know. Pallet wood is not necessarily the best to use for direct contact with soil...
  10. Pallets to planters

    I wanted to build some raised garden beds for a few reasons, one being to keep the dogs from digging in the beds and to keep them from naturally "watering" the plants. Also, for ease of maintenance. I started pricing cedar and redwood and decided to go the cheap route and found some great 4'x9'...
  11. Twisted Bookshelf

    My wife found a pic of this bookshelf one day and I thought it would be great for my friend's daughter's first home homewarming present. Made it out of pallets and that took quite a bit of "pre-paring" break down pallets and pull nails - whee! mate up the boards to make longer boards, mill...

  13. pallet recycling - shoe rack

    I've recently taken up woodworking as a hobby. That being said, I have VERY LITTLE experience making anything of substance. I made 2 bookshelves a couple of years back-- that constitutes the entirety of my career in woodworking so far :) Anyway, I've read through a lot of posts about pallet...
  14. Pallet Seated Highchair for my Daughter.

    Hello Everybody! I recently finished my latest project, and I have to say that I am just thrilled with how it came out! It is these kinds of projects that make you feel like you "really can do this" or that you "just might be able to hone your skills enough to be a good wood worker some day"...

  16. bathroom vanity from pallets

    This was a custom order I did for a gal. I first informed her that I had no clue what I was doing, but was willing to give it a shot, and if she liked it, we'd go from there. All in all, six oak pallets were dismantled and the wood sorted for the best slats. She was extremely pleased with the...
  17. Laundry bench

    This was a custom order that came out of my previous project. Most of the wood is recycled pallets, including the tabletop. The only wood I had to get was the apron and longitudinal shelf support beams. The bench measures 60×36 x 12 inches, and took me a week to build. Thanks for looking
  18. Reclaimed play table

    Here is a play table I made out of reclaimed pallets and a leftover sheet of birch plywood. My sister requested that I make one for my nieces for Christmas this last year. I don't remember the dimensions. It is like 2ftx3ft and 18" tall. I made the side rails out of the slats on the pallet...

  20. Chicken Coop

    My son asked me to make him a chicken coop. I have access to pallets, so … I took the bottom off and connected them together. I filled in the gaps in the slats with other slats. I put a floor in it and slopped the roof. When it was completed, I loaded it on to a rented trailer and hauled to...
