There’s no such thing as having too many books. Except if you have no space to store them all. So how about a bookshelf that is made from wooden pallets? They look sleek, right?

    Nice work and a fairly good idea, except that pallets are generally re-used until they fall apart so taking them for any other use just forces a new one to be made.

  • Oo

     Most pallets are either thrown out or burned. Hardly anyone turns in their pallets for re-use. Saving something from the trash is not causing new ones to be made. They would already be making new ones regardless.

    I love creative stuff. I would also have liked a little more detail (and a bigger picture) of the office in the montage at the top of the page.

    @fb46c9afd136ebc1b85360de24b5c912:disqus — I  just added more info in there. Brilliant project for an office, I reckon.

    The commercial property I work for is always getting pallets left that are in really good shape. (Both wood and black heavy plastic.) I am sure it is different in other industries or warehouses, but where I am nobody comes back for them and we don’t have the means to be hauling them in for reuse so most of the time they get cut up and tossed or broken down for scraps for other projects.

    As  someone  who sees plenty of pallets in the course of a week, might I mention that the average pallet is made of poor quality, splintery timber, its held together by a mass of ribbed annular nails that are nigh-on impossible to remove. It’s a fairly nasty utilitarian thing.

    As are almost all of these ‘furniture’ ideas.
    I quite like the green coffee-table, but the amount of work required to make pallet-timber presentable is so great that it would have made a lot more sense to go to a timber-merchant and buy planed timber to make your own fake pallet.

    If you’re homeless and squatting in an abandoned warehouse, pallet furniture makes sense.
    Elsewhere, not so much.

    Pallets haul chickens (and therefore chicken shit). Pallets haul chemicals. Pallets haul vegetables (and are left with rotten bits all over them). Pallets are traded out with no discretion between farms, factories and warehouses all the time. Pallets haul all kinds of disgusting stuff that you all seem to have no idea about. If you think it’s a good idea to put a used pallet anywhere near your food, your kids, or anything in your home, then you are incredibly ignorant.

  • lewl

    To be fair guys, this could be for the aesthetic of pallets, in which case you could build your own and simply use the structural style as a nod to the architypical pallet.

    the furniture are nice and really fits in putting inside a beautiful house…

    Thought you have shown different motif in designing your home, still they all look fabulous and fantastic. I love them all but I still prefer modern type of organizing.

    If you are looking for something different then provide furniture a metal contact for an business overall look. This includes the sanding of the exterior followed by the treatment of dirt and lastly implementing the federal government. The artwork can be done either through treating or using a curler, both of which are quite efficient.

  • Brokendownharley

     Seriously, you are not the brightest bulb on the tree are you??? Think about what you are saying. All the food, clothing, everyday household products, beverages…. everything. Everything that you consume on a daily basis, everything you wear, the soap you bathe with, the food you eat and beverages you drink. Everything has been on those same pallets that you talk about hauling chicken shit and chemicals and you have a problem with people making furniture out of them??? Who is incredibly ignorant now you moron???

    I have a lots of collection of stylish designed furniture in my own home and all furniture was made from a quality wood and other material. If i will want to buy a furniture in future,then i would like to buy Pallet furniture because they provide a different types of designs furniture and attractive furniture with a good quality of material.

  • Sickestboy

    i cant belive that in this day and age there are people as thick and clueless as you travis bet you eat ready made meals, processed food and eat take aways and in eating establishments . Plus every other item you come in contact with and bring in to your house you haven,t got a clue where or who it has been with or incontact with .
      Also chickens get transported in big yellow plastic mesh boxes,not bundeled onto pallets and shrincked wraped like you seem to think so. 
    If more people recycled everyday objects to good use ,then hopefully 1 day your children and their children will grow up in a better ,non waste polluted world.

  • Daniel

     Thank you for the kind words :)

  • yeld

    If you sand, prime, and finish the wood before using it, that will eliminate almost all the germs.

  • Olga A

    Now it´s mine too ;)

  • sam

    Does anyone know. a pattern for making the cushions for the comfy sofa one? I have the frame but need to make cushions or get them?

  • SquareBanana

    If you find older pallets, like the ones we have, they are made of oak, cedar, other very durable woods. They are so strong that I can barely get a plank off of it without having to hammer on it for 10 minutes. They take a lot of time to take apart but I think its worth it. And they’re free.

    If you sand, wash, seal the pallets are ok, use pallets that are stamped HT.

    Hi there, I’m thinking of building a bed made of pallets. My concern is about cleaning under the bed, like vacuuming and stuff. For those who have that kind of bed, what do you do?


  • disqus_frKAsI3ZQl

    Put the bed on castor wheels so you can move it out of the way a little :)

  • hlwood

    You are the one that is ignorant for not knowing that you can purchase new pallets at the hardware store for just a few dollars!!!
