Step 1:

1.Cut and screw on the feet
2.Cut the bracing with 45° ends and screw in to stiffen the rack
3.Cut the arms around 550mm long. i cut the angle for aesthetics 
4 you can get two arms with one cut and save timber too
5. predrill and screw them onto the pallet
6. at the ends I have butchered the pallet as I did not have a drill extension. Try to avoid this as it weakens the structure and looks crappy.

Step 2:

1.Sand the ends of the arms and any rough bits on the pallet (add rubber/EVA padding if available)
2.Move into place
3.Load up with boards

    I made one similar and finished it with an old yoga mat for protection. It's amazing.

    This is such a cool idea. I would have never thought of. Lately I've been looking for a better way to store all my boards and I'll probably use this way. Thanks for sharing!
