Introduction: Pipe & Pallet Shelf

Steph has been looking for some shelves in her office to hold supplies. We haven't used pipe or pallet wood before in a project so we thought shelves would be a great way to try both materials and get some cool shelves!

Step 1: Watch the Video

Step 2: Gather Materials

  • Pallet (they come in different shapes and sizes- we used a pallet that had wood 5.5" wide)
  • Sawzall (to cut pallet)
  • (2) 3/4" Plumbing Pipe 6" length
  • (2) 3/4" Flange
  • (2) 3/4" Cap (we priced out each item separately and found it cheaper to buy them in a set on amazon. Same pipes you would buy from the hardware store but it came all together in one package)
  • (16) Screws and anchors

Step 3: Deconstruct the Pallet

We cut the sides off with a sawzall then cut through the middle support, and cut the boards off.

Step 4: Sand and Seal the Board

Step 5: Decide Where You Want the Shelves

Step 6: Attach Pipes

Step 7: Use a Straight Edge and Level to Get Pipes Lined Up

Step 8: Add Pallet Wood and Done
