Pallets

Posted: 22/03/2014 at 21:25

Here is my photos, first how the pallet started

Then I took the 3 planks off the back. turned over the pallet to the top side of the table I want to use, took off the top planks as I did not want the spaces in-between using a hammer and crowbar

Then re arranged the planks and started putting them back on the 3 boards in the middle, used a large right angle to help and nails hammered in in the planks, I removed the last plank after I put the rest back on to keep the pallet in the right sized block width

Then I removed the under blocks and sawed off the excess wood and 3 blocks because where I moved the planks along there was about 2 plank spacing left

Here in the picture below is the back of the potting table

When I managed to take apart the first pallet into planks and block I could imagine lots of things to make out of them, it is amazing when they are bit of wood instead of pallet to see different things to make

Thanks  No expert for the info and pics

Started on the potting table the other day taking apart another pallet

Done more pallet hammering yesterday putting the top bit of the potting table together now it looks like a piece of wood with no gaps between,  just seeing if I can have a shelf as well from the pallets

Hello all

Been doing pallet bashing today for my potting table - 2 pallets bashed nearly ready to put planks together in some sort of order.

Then plant delivery came from Cotty1000 on the forum and I potted them up

Think I am a nutter hit my hand a few times with hammer and my leg while pallet bashing now bruised

Nutcutlet - one of my variegated honesty plants is growing nicely sown from last year
