Mallet From Pallets




Introduction: Mallet From Pallets

This is a great project for those who want to make something cool, easy to make.
The cost of the materials for this project was essentially 0€ and nails come from pallet too.

With the pallet wood you can get some really nice grain and patterns.

Don't forget free is better ^^

Step 1: Materials and Tools


  • Pallet Wood
  • Square piece of wood
  • Nails - come from pallet
  • Some oil (optional)


  • Hammer
  • Cutting tool
  • Wood plane
  • 80 and 200 grid sandpaper
  • Wood glue
  • Pencil
  • C-Clamp

Step 2: Building

Very simply, we'll put it all together with wood glue.

We start with the board 20 * 8 cm then two boards 8 * 8 cm and the handle between the two, another two boards 8 * 8 cm and finally the last board 20 * 8 cm.

You can see the result with photos.

We glue everything with wood glue and clamp with c-clamp.

After drying, we put four nails into the handle.

For the handle I will use a plane to transform square to oval to get a better grip.

Then sanding with 80 and 200 grid sandpaper.

And finally a layer of oil to protect it.

Here your free pallet mallet , don't forget it's better when it's free. ^^
