Wooden Pallets To Make Furniture
02 Jun 2023
Did you know that wooden pallets can be repurposed in all sorts of creative ways? As they are constructed with long boards of timber, nails, and glue, wooden pallets are easy to take apart for their raw materials.
If you have any used or unwanted wooden pallets lying around, discover some of the fun DIY projects you could do with Associated Pallets! Below, we’ve listed just a few ways to repurpose your pallets and avoid them ending up in landfills.
An easy way to get into using wooden pallets to make furniture is wooden planters. They can make an excellent addition to any garden or patio for summer and are a great and creative project for kids to join in on!
Learn more about how to make wooden planters using pallets on our other blog here. Alternatively, use our more straightforward tutorial blog that utilises wooden crates, also available for purchase, new and used on our website.
A shoe rack is another piece of furniture that can be made using wooden pallets. Everyone needs a place to store their shoes, and with wooden pallets, you can make any size rack that can fit within your unique space. The project can be incredibly simple to start, requiring only one wooden pallet. Plus, we can provide used wooden pallets for a cost effective solution that can let you get into pallet DIY.
With the right tools, it can be easy to cut to shape the timber boards used in wooden pallets to create a compact shoe rack that can be stored behind a front or back door or within a shoe cupboard.
An intermediate wooden pallet furniture project, garden and patio furniture can also be a fun and exciting use for your unneeded wooden pallets. Perfect for summer get-togethers, all it takes is a few tools and joinery skills to cut the pallets apart and nail or glue them together again. You can use existing wooden chairs as a fantastic reference for the size required for the legs, seat, and back, and with the addition of a couple of blankets, duvets, and pillows, your patio or garden can be ready for the sunny weather!
Wooden pallets can be used to make a lot more than just standard furniture. With enough wooden pallets, you can make your own sturdy swimming pool! By arranging the pallets upright and connecting them in an octagonal, rectangular, or square shape, you can easily create sturdy walls to support a watertight pool sheet. Just nail, pin, or glue the sheet inside the pallet shape and secure the whole thing to a sturdy floor of wooden boards.
Using any excess pallets and planks, you can even build accessories for the pool, like a table to place drinks and toys or a set of wooden stairs that can allow easy access in or out of the pool. Once you’re done building, just fill it with water and have fun in the sun!
