Start by disassembling your pallets. Then from the leftover wood decide the dimensions of your base and lay out the necessary pieces required to do so. Mark out the required space, cut and then laminate the pieces together with wood glue. Once laminated if the pieces have uneven surfaces sand them down so that it can rest evenly on a table.
Step 2: The Stand
Find pieces of pallet wood that you can cut roughly 3.5'' x 12'' pieces. you need 4 of these. sand them all down so that they are all exactly the same height so they can rest evenly to the base and the lampshade that will be made and attached later. Screw the pieces together as shown in the picture.
Step 3: Attaching The Stand To The Base
Measure where the center of your base is and place the stand there and trace where the stand needs to be. Mark where the stand wood can and can not be drilled on the base. Mark and drill your holes on the base then clamp the stand and place the base on the stand and drill again and then screw in your screws.
Step 4: The Shade Holder
Take a piece from a base of a pallet. cut down the piece so that it may fit into the stand. DO NOT screw the holder in yet. This will be done after you line it up with the shade once it is made.
Step 5: The Shade
Cut 2 8'' x 5'' pieces, 2 3.5'' x 12'' pieces, and 1 7'' x 12'' piece. I did not have a piece that would cut down to be 7x12 so I laminated two smaller pieces together. Then attach them all together as seen in the picture. Do not attach the shade to anything else yet.
