Introduction: Pallet Herb Trough

This is a pallet trough my self and my brother inlaw made today. We have next to 0 DIY practice but came up with this little beauty and it was very easy to do!

Step 1: Start

1- dismantle the pallets and organise which ones you want to use for base, sides and the ends.
2- place two planks together with a tight fit and brace with 2-4 prices with around a 2CM clearance round the edges to provide support for the side peaces and ends.

Step 2: The Sides

1- decide how high you want to go with the walls we went for three deep and braced them so that the sides rested on the iver hang of the base braces and the side braces sat on top of the base itself.
2- we were going to be putting this against a wall so the back one is vertical to allow it to sit flush agains the wall and the front side is angled to allow for space.

Step 3: Ends and Feet

The ends were just offered up to the frame and marked and drilled is as we went and the feet we decided to use the bits of wood that separated the latest of the original pallet and you are done! I hope this helps some one!

love it! I'm going to borrow your idea; but will double up on the bottom braces instead of adding feet.
