I didn't want to fork out on a new one, but I wanted something a little more substantial than a dinner tray. So I decided to build one.
Fortunately I stumbled across a wooden palette resting against a skip next door.
> Claw hammer
> Nails (I reused the nails from the palette)
Step 1: Separating the palette
Separating the wood is quite difficult, as the nails are usually quite long and wood is quite soft.
I used the chisel and sledgehammer to separate the wood and then used the hammer to leverage them away.
You'll now have a platform for the sledge.
Separate three boards, to be used as the rails.
