For this project you will need the following materials:
- A suitable pallet as described in the next two steps
- A hand-saw or jigsaw
- Electric drill or hammer
- Two sizes of screws and nails - approx. lengths 4 cm (1-1/2") and 8cm (3")

Optional:
- Heavy duty chisel/wedge and iron mallet
- Non-toxic paint and paintbrush

Step 1: Choosing Your Pallet

First of all, choosing pallets for diy projects involves a bit of know-how. You need pallets that are in good condition, without rot, and which have not been treated with chemical insecticides.

Step 2: Construction Begins

The premise of this project is to cut it into three pieces and reassemble them. You use spare parts cut off in the first step to build the sides and create the feet.

Step 3: More Details on This Project

The strawberry pallet planter will take you an afternoon to complete. Afterwards, paint it with non-toxic wood stain to extend it's life. Full project and planting up details are on Lovely Greens.

    I appreciate all the thought that has gone into a planter made out of what is basically scrap lumber. What I don't see is just how you isolate and plants all levels. I do see the straw in a photo and wire mesh in the bottom. I guess because of being new to this type of thing, it isn't all clear to me. A clarification please.
