DIY: the pallet swing upcycle project
An old pallet becomes a place of rest.

Wooden pallets are a Diyer’s friend. They are used to hold heavy goods, and to be moved around by forklift or pallet jacks. This means they are robust, but also portable.
But even sturdy, hard-wearing wooden pallets have a set lifespan, and are offered up free on roadsides in industrial zones.
Pallets may have damaged, rotten, cracked, or missing battens. Look for a second ‘donor pallet’ of the same size so you can dismantle it and replace any boards you need.
