Transforming Old Pallets Into a Garden Bench

About: We are Fantastic Gutter Cleaners, a London based gutter cleaning company. We are a part of the big Fantastic Services family and we try to bring valuable insights to everyone interested.

Having some spare wood you just can't throw away? Well, that's just fine and dandy as you can use it to make yourself a nice garden bench. All you need is the wood, a few pallets and some nails. Well a wood polisher and sandpaper would be nice if you want it to be fancy, but they are not necessary.

Step 1: Arrange the Pallets in the Form of Your Future Bench

Use them as a "skeleton" for your bench. If they are too width/long, cut them in half.

Step 2: Nailing

Nail the wood planks to form a stable bench.

Step 3: Finish

After you are done you can use the sandpaper to make it smoother .. if you wish. After that all you need is a cold one to enjoy the fruit of your work.
