As some of you may know, I love to recycle pallets!
And today I have decided to show you how I am creating a simple design shelf with a piece of pallet wood... Which will bring you to this final result:

Ok, Now let's start!
Dismantle the pallet wood
All you will need is an EURO pallet 80*120 (of course the best will be to get an HT type (heat treated))
Turn it up side down to after that sue your clamps to stabilize it on your table or workbench.
After using your jig saw for the cut, you should end up with this piece.
The dissemble to top side to cut o size the piece between the top and pallet blocks. (Of course don't forget to remove the nails)
and here you should have your blocks all squared
Then time to replace the top in place and start some sanding
Round up the edges, sand and paint
Here if needed you can square up or round up the edges with your router (I am using in that case a chamfer bit)
When done with the router, time to move to some painting
Then making also the edges for the back board with the router table
Wood burning and rustic effect
Applying a shou sugi ban wood burning technique to the wood
then some wood lacquer to highlight the burning effect
And here is the pallet board after
Adding the pipes and hinges
Then after that moving to the pipe cut
After making all the cut, time to assemble the doors with the hinges, the attach the pipes and mount the all to the wall.
Mounting to the wall:
I am sharing with you below a short video of the build:
And here an exploded version of this design but you will of course be able to also find it in the interactive plan.
