First to build the sides or the legs of the barbecue, we are going to need 2 europalets and modify them as in these 2 images. We will extract the planks and the wooden blocks indicated, and then cut them so they are not so big.

Then unite both legs with the help of four long boards, obtained from another pallet. Nail them on the bottom forming a structure with an “U” shape.

Then, to build the middle shelf of the barbecue, extract enough planks from other pallets, and unite them as you see in the image, creating a large shelf. Fit it on the middle and fix it with the help of 4 metal brackets and some screws.

Finally we put the grill on the top, we can recycle an old one, buy a new one, or even create one if we have a few metal parts and a grill. To fix it over the pallet table in this case we have used 2 long metal structures that rely on the sides. It’s important that the barbecue does’nt come into contact with the wood, as it can reach high temperatures and get burned.

The final detail will be to set some boards over the metal supports, so we will cover them and improve the finish, plus they can be used as side tables for cooking.

Below you can see some pictures of the 3D model with the end result.

Pallet lounge for your patio or garden

Nothing more and nothing less than from Indonesia, Satria sent us this great lounge for the garden, a full set of double sofa and a nice table 100% made with pallets. With a few pallets Satria has managed to improve the exterior of her home, the end is so good and elegant, the mahogany color of the wood rightly contrasts with the white sofa cushions, using the style of the Balinese décor that we usually can see at the best hotels of Soth-East Asia.

To make this couch is very simple, you can see in this post the 3D drawings to build it. In any case then I’ll explain you now in a simple way.

To start building one of these sofas we are going to need the following things: 6 pallets, a crowbar, a hammer, mahogany varnish and a brush, nails, a sander, 2 foam mattresses and upholstery fabric.

First from the 6 pallets turn aside two in order to extract the boards and the wooden blocks from behind, they are going to be used to build the backrest. Then stack 2 and 2 pallets that will be the seat, and fix the two other parts behind the stacked pallets. Use the hammer and nails to accomplish this, so all the pallets will be perfectly joined.

Finally we’ll imporve the end of the furniture, so we must sand it completely un til we clean it, and then paint it with the mahogany varnish. Then cut off the foam mattresses with the dimensions of the backrest and the seat of the sofa, and upholster them with a white color fabric.

As you can see is very easy to build a sofa with only 6 pallets, you can also add another one and make a table as did Satria, and so we’ll have fully furnished our house garden. It’s the best way to take the maximum profit of our space.

A wall planter made with one pallet and some boards

Ben has again surprised us with another of his pallet furniture projects, this time it’s a planter to hang on a wall, easy to make but very colorful and decorative, ideal for placing it outside, on a sad wall of your house. In this planter you can plant the plants that you desire, but it can also be a good idea to plant some herbs for cooking, such as oregano, rosemary, parsley etc.

1x1.trans A wall planter made with one pallet and some boards

To do this planter you are going to need an entire pallet, a lever, sandpaper, a saw, nails, wooden glue, screws, a hammer, a screwdriver, a sheet of PVC, a cutter, a pencil, metal brackets, a chain, pliers, 2 small metal buckets, potting soil and various plants.

As you can see the idea is to take profit of the top of the pallet, where we’ll make the planters, so the first step is to extract the planks and the rear pallet wooden blocks with the help of the lever. Then we’ll disinfect all the wood since in this case the pallet is recycled, so clean up and all the surfaces and sand them.

1x1.trans A wall planter made with one pallet and some boards

To make the front planters, we just have to cut a few planks taking advantage os the obtained planks from the original pallet. Cut them with the appropriate measures and fix them with wooden glue and some nails to the pallet, as we have done in the picture, forming 2 horizontal boxes.

With the metal brackets, the chain and the buckets (which are from Ikea) do the hanging side planters, just screw the metal brackets, and cut and fix the chain and the buckets.

A good option is to add some decorative motifs, we have added to the necessary materials a PVC sheet, a pencil and a cutter; this is to the create the upper letters “Little Garden” We just have to draw on the PVC sheet these letters and then cut them using the cutter, then glue the letters to the pallet. Ben is a graphic artist and has also printed some words on the wood, using a template and white paint, at the end the final decoration is completely up to you.

Next add the potting soil and plant the plants in the buckets and the planters. And finally we can set the pallet planter on the any wall.

Instructions to create a pallet furniture rack for the bathroom

If you are thinking of reforming your bathroom without doing big construction works, we want to propose you a very complete pallet furniture that occupies very little space. This is a nice rack made from a pallet with a simple and modern design. The white and neutral color furniture makes it easy to match with other cabinets.

This pallet rack allows you to organize your daily utensils such as the toothbrush, the razor, products like toilet paper, soap, makeup etc. Also, if the shape of the cabinet is not the most appropriate for your bath, its dimensions could be adapted taking out a shelf for example. In addition you have the possibility to paint it of any color that you like, and even maintain the original tone of the wood by applying some layers of varnish.

1x1.trans Instructions to create a pallet furniture rack for the bathroom

To start the materials and tools that you are going to need are: a pallet, a hammer or a nail gun, a lever or crowbar, a saw, some nails and a tape measure.

The first step consist on extracting 5 pallet planks with the hammer and the lever. Then with the hand saw we are going to cut eight planks; 5 with the measures of 91’4 cm (36 ”) and 5 with dimensions of 44.4 cm (17’5 ”) and 4 triangular pieces with dimensions of 8.8 cm (3’5 ”) x 8.8 cm (3’5′ ‘) x 4’5 cm (11’4′ ‘). The width of these planks depends on the pallet that you have chosen, in our project they measure 8.8 cm (3’5 ”).

When we have already the pallet planks, align 5 of 91’4 cm (36 ”) and post them with the 3 planks of 44.4 cm (17’5 ”) crossed, one on top, one on the middle and the last one at the bottom like we show you in the pictures.

Lamp structure built using pallet boards

If you are thinking about building your own lamp, this is your chance to use the pallets to make one. Pallet boards are a good solution for creating structures, and in this case they can be exploited to make the foot and the body of it. The project, which looks great, was sent by our follower Ben, and we can only thank him the detail, lately he has been always sending us pallet furniture projects, and all have a very high level.

As you can see in these pictures, the pedestal base is made with some pallet planks crossed, then the base has been cut with a circular shape. You must give some weight to the base in order to balance the structure.

The structure of the lamp has also been made with wooden planks, simply the boards have been joined using wooden glue, the new linked boards have been placed with some angle to obtain a little curve in the structure.

As you can see in this photo, the top screen support has also been made with pallet boards, joining them with a more or less circular shape. The screen was made with chicken wire, and wrapping a over it string, it’s very easy to do it and the result fits very well with the boards of the pallets.

The bulbs has been placed in a few glass jars, which have also been wrapped with some string, as you can see the use of recycled materials is maximized.
