Low Cost Tool Cupboard - Repurposed Particleboard/chipboard Pallets. Cheap & Cheerfull Woodwork Project. Armoire a Outils

About: I am an escapee from modern life, now living by the sea in a forest garden in France. After over 20 years industrial experience, I quit my managerial position to study for a degree in Engineering. That done ...

Repurposing low end chipboard/particleboard pallets to make a handy tool cupboard for use in a well-ventilated workshop. Not materials I usually work with but 4 turned up recently at my suppliers and I had just the job to fit them. Also included, how to repurpose a set of door hinges to make a staple and padlock fitting, normally an expensive item to buy. I use a power tool for this becauseI wanted to photograph the sparks but you can make this with a hacksaw!!! This project cost me approximately 2 Euros/dollars/pounds, almost everything in it was repurposed.

    Thanks for your comments, much appreciated! We really enjoy creating items from repurposed materials and also making the films but getting feedback/comments is an additional bonus. Best Wishes from France, Organikmechanic aka Andy

    There are ads that are over your text for the entire video. Did you use copyrighted music? If you use other music, the ads will go away.

    Hi, No my musical soundtrack is in the Public Domain, on a non-commercial licence but I have permission from the Artists of GreenEarthForever - Nowick and Eugene to monetise it. I never use copyrighted music. It is quite simple to turn the ads off, you click the x in the right hand top corner of the ad box they will go off the screen and not come back again. I've just noticed I left off the musical link in the description. I usually put it on so thanks for reminding me.
