First, we have to take the pallet and polish its surface with the help of the sander or a sandpaper, in order to achieve a smooth surface.

Then, we will measure the length of the pallet to cut the plywood board, that we’ll place on the bottom of the pallet. This piece of wood has to fit between the two boards below the pallet.

We will use the piano hinge to attach the piece of plywood that will work as a desk. Thanks to the piano hinge the furniture will be much more solid, specially when opening and closing the table.

Once we have finished building the cabinet, we can apply the mahogany varnish layers to it. Wait for it to dry before hanging the desktop on the wall.

Then, place the hooks into the spikes and with the help of the metal flanges fix the cable as we show you in the photograph. We have to adjust the cables with the right length, when you open the table it has to remain subject and perpendicular to the shelf.
