 These modular planters and benches were made from pallets, just finished one have yet to plant it up. They can be arranged in a number of ways almost infinitely. Each planter holds approx 40L of compost. 


Clever idea just vegin - looks classy.

Look forward to seeing your table Gardengirl

Just Vegin that looks amazing

Here is a pic of the pallets I got from the skip

Not had one like this before really thick wood planks going sideways


Here is the one that looks like a table not sure how I will use it

Thanks for your comment Edd,, was wondering why you don't use stain? I did use stain that is ok for this kind of use, however further protection wouldn't go a miss.

 I use this idea from YouTube for breaking up the pallets, it just uses body weight and no effort at all and very little damage to the wood the fork goes on the skid and under the plank to remove,  then stand on the back and it lifts the plank from both sides of the skid so very little splitting occurs. 10 times faster than hamer and chisel. 


Well at the min a new pallet project is going on there has been sawing, bashing, hammering and now painting.

This project is one for the train station -  not telling you what it is until it is done

Just got a good few pallets today brand new some of them still with plastic wrap on

They had a add on gumtree trying to get rid of pallets as they had loads think these ones I got must of come in today

A man on a fork lift truck put 3 near the car to help us said these are nice ones and some were in a pile this is from a printing company so maybe they get lots of large sheets of paper or boards  

That sound good Edd

Here you go a picture of the new pallets with the plastic still on

and some small ones as well and another board which has nice and close slats of wood

Here is what I have been sawing and sorting out today 2 bits of fencing for front garden for on top of wall - just needs painting
