Pallet wood can be used for so many things!!! And in this video, i will be sharing with you a nice and simple way to craete some crate boxes for your home.
Here they have been created in order to place some wood below a chimney.
Below, I am sharing one of the final pictures with you but if you would like to see more... Check out the full youtube video Tutorial!
and more below...
We put together a list of some of the tools used in the shop on our Amazon Store (affiliate link), if you'd like to support what we do, shop through this link: MyATCtv Amazon Store
One of the first steps will be to find some good pallets to start this project:
Then when you have them all, it's time to dismantle them all in order to keep the wooden slat.
After removing each slats, you should end up with something looking pretty much like that
And remove the nails...
Then now it's time for us to clean each side of slat with a thickness planer.
When cone with the cleaning, I am moving to my miter saw to cut each slat with the appropriate measurement.
After cutting them all here is the result:
So basically here are the number of slats you will need to create one crate boxe (12 for the frame and 4 for the bottom part).
And to round up a little bit the edges, I have decided to use my router.
After the router, I've moved to my disc sander to smooth down the surface...
Note that the corners will be held using some scrap wood I have in my workshop and then cut them in half using a table saw.
Then when they are all ready, it's time to assemble then all
To attach the slats to each other, I am using here a nail gun
Here I am done with the main frame...
Then adding 4 slats for the bottom side...
And here we are...
5 crate boxes, easily made and giving some extra storage space in the living room
Here is a quick preview video of the build:
Let me know below what you think about this build and idea!!!
ATC for another idea of housing
