Picture of Pallet garden loungers
Make your own garden lounge chairs from free pallets. Simple design, functional and recycling all in one!

More info and other projects can be found on shoestringpavilion.blogspot.com

Step 1:

These are the materials you'll need:

(If you're making one lounge chair you'll only need 3 pallets but this tutorial is for two chairs)

- Four pallets of the same size, preferably rectangular
- One pallet slightly wider than your other pallets, more square than rectangular
- Scrap 2X4s or pallet scraps of the 2X4 kind

Great Idea.. so many Pallets are thrown in the trash, good way to up-cycle.

exactly ! why waste good pallets?

Nice deckchairs. Is the round table done also by you with pallets?

Nice project. Can u tell me the angle of the back? is it 30degrees?

@dmdsanchez. I'm very bad with angles but if I had to guess I'd say it's about 30 degrees. I just adjusted the angle of the backrest until it felt right :)

Love it! You've got my brain moving, as you'll soon see :-)

A couple more 2x4s and you wouldn't have to have a bigger pallet for the backrest. Cut the backrest pallet in half all the way across, and screw a full length 2x4 on to each side. This would use parts of more pallets though, and you've got a really optimal solution here.

I use the reflector from a street light buried to an inch of it's rim and filled with dirt to about two inches from the rim for a fire pit. That'd be a way to get rid of excess pallet. An oven rack makes a nice grill for it. :-) Just watch out for treated wood, but you wouldn't want to use that for a seat either. The splinters are nasty.

This is so Redneck I think I'll do it.

I made Sparkle Balls and I have 2 liter Wind Spinners as well.

My neighbors love me.

These lounge chairs are great cause they are nice and wide and the cushions

are a nice touch.

5.0 !
