The weekend's here! Our new DIY shelf tutorial makes for a productive weekend project. We usually use shabby, old pallets for our material, but this can be made from other sources. The images in our tutorial show wood that's been sanded and varnished, and therefore took a few hours to construct. Feel free to make this in any way you prefer. If you have any questions or feedback, please leave us some!

Step 1: Know Your Pallet

The wooden blocks needed for this project are easy to find among EUR-pallets, and the sizes may vary from one pallet to another.

However, finding the pallet itself may not be as easy.

    <p>@rnijland that looks awesome! keep it up!</p>
    <p>@NitroRustlerDriver good point!</p>
    i made something similar, based on this tutorial...
    <p>If you overhung the support plank past the top by a little bit, you could use this area to put a screw through into the wall, or even just drill a hole to hang the shelf from. For extra support and to keep it from swinging you could put another screw through the middle section.</p>
    @OutlawKtulu hey, thank you! we used the same interior screws to drill into the wall for the sake of the picture. although its pretty sturdy, you can also attach shelf hangers and hook them up with nails in the wall for long-term use. its up to you.
    <p>I do have a question, what are you using to attach the project to the wall? </p>
    <p>Nice Idea! I don't have any pallets around the shop, but I do have some Douglas Fir blocks and 1 inch thick boards that need to be used up :) </p>
    <p>love the crystal</p>
    <p>@Muhaiminah Faiz thank you!</p>
    <p>This is fairly easy to make and looks awesome! </p>
