This piece of furniture was built using 99.9% pallet wood! The pallets and milk crate were aquired through the free section on craigslist. It was a joy to design and build, I got my demenions based on the milk crates that I found. Mine ended up being just over 5 ' long 14" deep and 18" tall. Due to the materials this project was very cost effect. In fact it cost me zero dollars! In this Instructables I will give an overview of what I did to achieve my final product. What tools I used and so on. The tools and materials I used could be changed and substituted depending on what you have access to.

Tools I used:
Table saw
Miter Saw/Chop saw
Drill
Pneumatic Narrow crown staple gun
Palm sander

Materials:
2 Pallets
3 Rectangular Milk Crates
Scrap 3/4" plywood
Scrap 1/8" Masonite
Wood glue
11/4" screws/ staples

Step 1: Inner Frame

I started by building the frame and legs. The uprights/legs were build with pallet wood; the Horizontel pieces are a bit of 3/4" plywood that I ripped down to the same width as my pallet wood. The legs were built using two pieces that are tapperd at the bottom, the outer part of the leg goes all the way up the the frame and the other just 6" to the other horizontal price of the frame.

The pieces then got joined together with the siding/top pallet pieces. I glued stapled all of this together using my narrow crown stapler. Using 1 1/4" staples. The top pieces are cut at a 45 degree angle and attached starting with the cernter two pieces and working my way out. Reinforcing the center pieces with a scabbed on piece from underneath.
I love a good pallet project and yours looks awesome. I love the milk crates. Ill have incorporate that idea soon

That looks really cool. Do you have any in-progress pictures that show how it is put together.

I will be adding some more soon
