Now we're going to share with you a tutorial video of a pallet furniture that has two functions at the same time. It’s a bench and a shoerack too. You can sit on it while put on your shoes and also have a little space to store them.
Enjoy it! ;)
what you need:
- 2 pcs of 120x80cm pallets
- saw or jig saw
- hammer and nails
- sanding papers or tool
- woodpaint, paintbrush
- measuring tape
- + and the most important: safety tools!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: TUTORIAL VIDEO
Saw a 33cm - 13in part or a size what kind of entry bench you want. (You can see a pic of it in the video.) We used jig saw to the faster work, but a simple saw also a good choice.
! safety first !
Always use goggles, respirator and gloves to protect yourself.
From the rest of the pallet you can finish the bench andalso create the legs. Take apart it - we used a sabre saw, but if you don't have any, use an iron saw.
- the top and the bottom:
After that need a 80cm - 31,5in slat and clinch 3 cubes on it and join it to the first separated part of the pallet. After you turn around this part of the bench-shoerack, fix the slats on the other side too. <<< Need 2 from this part - it will be the top and the bottom of the furniture.
- the legs:
Need 2 pcs of 33cm - 13in slats and 2 pcs of cubes for the legs. Simple you join them each other.
Repeat the full process once more by the second pallet!
Step 4: Sanding
Keep sanding until the surface is free from all rough things. We used a sanding tool with 80 grit paper. By the hard approachable surface use a piece of slat and wind around the grit paper...or use a rotary sanding tool, much easier work.
After that, brush the dust off.
Step 5: Paintwork
Almost the last step is paintwork, we used mahagony colour wood paint. Let the surface dry completely, it takes 24 hours.
Step 6: Joint
Hole where the parts of the entry shoe storage bench will join each other. After that mark the place of the next holes
with a help of nail. - So the parts will pass correctly. Use carriage bolts in order to the bench will be stable and join the parts.
Step 7: Finally
Check the video tutorial, we hope will motivate you to "do it yourself". Have fun!
