Pallet Garden Bench

3

When I build a chair or bench out of pallets (or anything for that matter), a lot of time is spent walking around each pallet and staring at it. (The neighbors must think I’m a little loopy.)  For this garden bench, I had a few very solid pallets in my stack. One was cut in half and then halved again for the legs, while another was cut in half for the seat.  The seat was placed on top of the two legs and fit in it like it was made for it. A few outdoor wood screws secure it in place. The back is one whole pallet from the top of the seat all the way to the ground, with screws joining the back to the seat and legs. A hand sander finished off the piece to smooth out the cut edges and back.

One of the things I love about pallet furniture is how solid each piece is if you use the right pallets!  This bench is no exception.

$49 (with cushion)
