Now that i've got a decent sized room, I needed some furniture to fill it. Not only did I need some more storage space, I also needed a coffee table, so I thought, why not knock out two birds with one stone. Using some old pallets I was able to throw together this trunk using a design similar to a trunk my father owns. It's exactly what I was looking for.
In this instructable, I didn't include any measurements. I put out this instructable assuming that people will use measurements that suit their needs. I feel that i've provided sufficient pictures and instructions to allow for readers to figure out how to construct their own. Make sure that you look through the entire instructable before starting.
This is one of my first instructables, so let me know what could be improved upon. Excuse the mediocre photos, I don't have a very good camera. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
Step 1: Materials/Tools
- 2 Pallets (I got mine free from a construction site, just make sure you ask before you take)
- Nails & Screws (You can use whatever you want, but i used 1 1/2" and 2" finish nails and 1" dry wall screws)
- Scrap piece of plywood
- Table Saw
- Chop Saw
- Power Drill
- Reciprocating Saw
