Picture of DIY Pallet Shelf

What inspired me?

If you have seen a couple of my other Instructables, you will have noticed that I love obscure materials such as pallet wood, concrete and metal. I love using these in weird but wonderful projects such as phone holders, lamps and jewellery.

I recently acquired a couple of pallets my step dad and decided to make a few things. Since my little brother requested a shelf, I thought it was an idealistic situation.

What will you need?

- Two pallet lengths that are more then 3ft.

- Eight 25mm wood screws

- A measuring tape

- A pencil

- A Ruler ( 300mm)

- A Wood saw (I used a chop saw)

- Files and sand paper

- Drill Driver

- 3mm drill bit and counter sink tool

Step 1:

Use your measuring tape, to measure the length of both of the Pallet lengths you have. If they are more then 3ft, follow this step, if they are already exactly 3ft, then skip this step.

Using your measuring tape, measuring 3ft on both and mark this out with a pencil. When this is done, complete the mark by adding a single 90 degree lime. This will allow you to cut a straight line.
