Pallet bookcase

I've done a couple of new projects using pallets this week. The first, which I'm showing you today, was one I saw on pinterest. I don't know who originally did it but it's been done quite a few times.

I literally made 5 cuts to make this book rack. I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story. It took 5 minutes from start to finish.

I cut the boards to plug the bottom so they fit really tight in the hole. Then I finish nailed them into place.

I'll show you the other project after this weekend. I made a headboard for a client I'm doing a redesign for and I don't want to waste the surprise!


  1. That looks great! I totally want to make one now :) where do you even find pallets? Do you buy them somewhere?

  2. Beautiful!! I love it - you did a great job!

  3. Okay, even I have to admit that is pretty cool. You could keep all your por...traits of your family in there.
