Another of the great uses of the recycled wooden pallets is to build useful objects, and somewhat a little bit absurds at the same time! but we have to recognize that they can be quite useful and we can save a few euros… and this is always welcome…
This is the case of this book-end, an object which is not essential, but it will keep the books in order in our library (also made of pallets why not?).
The construction is the simplest than any that we have ever tried so far. We’ll just have to disassemble a pallet to get a few boards, clean them up and polish them well so then quality will be suitable, and then cut and join 2 boards together to form a 90º angle . Then we can put inside the interior of the angle a second piece, cut arbitrarily to give to the book-end a final nice design, also it will ad some weight to the system and you would be able to hold the books rightly.
Finally we will give it a better end, we can either varnish it or paint it, or just lift it as it is!
