This is a simple pallet bench project I wanted to share with everyone. I was making this for a family night we will be hosting. Though it is a bit crude it does the trick and I like the raw finish.

Step 1: Materials

You will need a few tools to get the job done. Drill, drill bit and phllips bit, hand saw (or power saw), 2-1/2 & 3 inch screws, tapemeasure, pencil, square & a sander. I used a 44x32" pallet, a 2x1x36" scrap wood for support& a 7' 2x4 for the legs.
<p>Looks great. One suggestion that I see having made similar style is that the legs could use X bracing or similar support. Legs are the weakest link most often especially when moved to uneven ground</p>
Great project! Many thanks.
<p>Simple design. Nice work.</p>
<p>Very Easy to Built.</p>
a days work. jus gtta sand and treat
hi.. al start off by saying i absolutly love this app.. :) i have seen a comment about tilting the back 5 degrees.. how could you do that..?
<p>thanks for the guide changed mine a little but your instructions got me started</p>
<p>I made mine just slightly different, but the idia and main plan was from yours </p>
love it! kids love it too
took about an hour to make with a bit of personalisation and she's looking beautiful (there's hidden beer holders at the back)
<p>Thank you from Israel :]</p>
Awesome!! This was my test bench I'm 6'4 384lbs and this could hold 2 of me! Thank you so much for the idea this is amazing!!
<p>In a project in Brussels we made already 2 benches, we adapted the construction of the legs, to make them stronger.</p><p>Very pleased about the concept - simple and strong.</p><p>We used a lot of wood glue - in the end, its the glue that will keep everything together for a longer period. You need a good contact between the pieces, you this demands a more precise construction.</p>
<p>Very comfortable!! I made 2 of those for another table made from pallets ...but the legs definitely need to be stronger. <br>Great idea, great project thx for the tips!<br></p>
Great to hear. Good luck and fun. Look forward to see the final project.
What Did this cost? :)
Nothing, I had everything but the screws would have costs a few bucks and the pallet was free. Good luck
This is a great bench. I've been looking for something simple and sturdy that used 1 pallet with few extras. I'm excited to get started. I'm going to make a few. I'll take pictures to share when I'm done so you can see what your work has inspired.
Of all the pallet chairs, this is the one I keep coming back to. I DO love this one and thinking how the upper back (on the back) would make a nice planter or even a small &quot;table&quot;. Now to get the husband motivated! Very good 'ible!
Thanks a lot. I love the idea of plants behind it. I want to make changes to my next one like arms with cup holders. I have other stuff I'll be posting so check back. <br> <br>Thanks again, <br>Chad
Not bad at all. A suggestion, angle the back about 5 degrees from vertical, it'll be more comfortable. As someone else said, add arms. Nice wide arms keep the cold ones close to hand, <br>
Thanks, I think your on to something with the arms with cup holders. May have to add those. My first go at it so the next one will have a few changes.
Great project thanks. We put one today on beautiful place where bench was missing.
Great view! Glad I could help fill that space. Enjoy
That's awesom, if you have a shelf ,which is fixed at the bottom of the backrest ,you would be able to put plants in it.
Good idea, Thanks. I think Ill add it on top of the back.
Good use of an item that is given away everyday here on CL. Thanks for the idea. Now to put it to use.. :-). <br>Great pics also.
I like it, although, I think I would have made the legs higher and added arms instead of the angled pieces. To each their own right ! rustic works well in woodland settings or camp grounds so I can see a lot of people liking this
Thanks. Thats what I was thinking but I ran out of lumber. When I was done I had a 18&quot; 2x4 left over. Haha Oh well I have one more pallet to see what else I can come up with.
ok, that makes sense ! I'm going to keep this in mind for a future project
