DYI Pallet Book Shelf

Introduction: DYI Pallet Book Shelf

Whats up everybody!

My Name Is ~Russ Gries. I have been in the open source community for a long time now making and sharing Manny projects. This is however the first post on instructables . One will find out that my instructables are video based, so this first post is all video orientated. I will update This with post with more photo based steps in the future.

In this video i go over how to make a Book Shelf from scrap Pallets. If the pallet you select is in good shape then you can make 2 shelf's with one pallet.

This video is all backwards. so, if your interested in how to make book shelf's just watch the entire video first and you will have all the necessary information to make your own Pallet Bookshelf's!

in case the video dose not show up here is a direct link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ja0-OEKpaM

Enjoy and leave a comment if you have any questions.

    That turned out looking great! I have a planter in front of my house that was made in similar fashion.
