One Pallet Lemonade Stand

Introduction: One Pallet Lemonade Stand

I had a single, spare shipping pallet I wanted to transform into a lemonade stand of sorts for my kids. I couldn't find any good plans for a stand using only one pallet. So I configured my own.

This is a super basic design. I simply cut across the pallet at about 1/3 and used the smaller piece as the base. Using some scrap wood, I attached the base at a 90 degree angle to the larger pallet piece. And that's it! You could stop there, but I went on using additional scrap around the house.

I had some leftover plywood painted with chalkboard coating. I cut this up into multiple piece to server as the counter top, signs on the sides (extra support too) and the big sign, which I mounted with some other scrap. For ease of transport I added some caster wheels on both ends so the entire unit could be tipped and rolled into place.

    This is really cute :) Did you take any progress photos while you were making it? Just for reference if you would like to break down the steps into written instructions and add some progress/step photos so that others can replicate your projects then it will receive more attention from the community and be possible to be featured on the site. Here are some helpful guides on how to write out an instructable. I look forward to seeing more great content from you!

    Thank you,

    I don't have any progress photos and only thought to post this as an after thought. I plan to document future projects accordingly.
