The pallet allows to double the desk surface and to get a lot of storage.

Step 1: Material list
- 1 pallet (or 2 if you plan to make the top surface with pallet wood)
- 5 mm plywood to make the bottom surface
- wood floor board with interlock (to make the top surface)
- 4 ikea vika legs
- some nails (10mm) and screws (at least 40mm)
Usually, pallet dimensions are 120 x 80cm, so you should select plywood and floor board according to your pallet size.
I have used :
- 2 plywood boards of 60 x 80cm (perfect fit!)
- 5 wood floor board of 16cm width (another perfect fit!)
Advantages of wood floor are : cheap, robust and clean
about tools, you may need a wood saw and metal saw, a hammer with a nail puller and a screw gun
