1. I'm a tightwad and pallets are free.
2. It's an earth friendly way to repurpose something that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
3. I like making stuff.
4. It's a challenge.
So here is my chair. This is a very simple build based on other chairs I found online, and I adapted this to the lumber sizes I had. If you have a saw, a drill, and a pallet you can make this.I designed it so it is easy to modify to your own needs. You could easily fan the back, build it with curving back and seat, or make bigger or smaller based on your lumber, skill, and your taste.
Step 1: Pallets
I did it by driving a pry bar between the boards. Pry slowly so you don't break the boards. Once they're apart drive out all of the nails.
Step 2: Get Everything Together
I used 1 1/2" drywall screws to put everything together, and a circular saw and cordless screwdriver.
