About: I like to make things from old pallets.

This is my first instructable,

I designed these (well not really designed), more cobbled together, when i was looking for uses for the off cuts of pallets that i didn't reuse for the climbing frame ive made. 

So yeah it took like 30 mins per one. cost about 50p.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Tools and Ting.


Tools:
I used a mitre saw because im lazy and crap at sawing wood straight.
16mm spade bit to make a drainage hole.
screwdriver.
Table saw
belt sander (again, because im lazy)

Materials 
End of a pallet 
piece of wood which can serve as a base
some screws.

Step 2: Construction.

Its fairly self explanatory. I sanded down all the surfaces with a 40 grit sanding belt.

cut two pieces of wood the size of the holes. They aren't perfectly straight but it doesnt really matter.

Drilled two holes in each one after i screwed them in place.

 

Step 3: Wang a Bit of Varnish on It.

just something to postpone the rotting process, which is inevitable but at least it looks ok and fits onto a window.

fill with soil and seeds.

BANG

its a window sill herb garden made from a bit of an old pallet!!

    I do hope u used a clean pallet as many are treated with chemicals you likely dont want to eat.

    Yes, I completely agree. I would recommend lining the inside with some PVC or similar film material. I should really of included that in one of the steps.
