An old pal­let be­comes a place of rest.

Turn an old pal­let into a pretty porch swing

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.
