Building a potting bench out of pallets.

For a weekend project my husband and I built this potting bench out of pallets. Such a great way to recycle pallets and also so useful.

Got a question about this project?

      @Dhc1124 This guy made a video on how he takes his apart with no special tools. Very interesting. I keyed in How to take apart pallet without splitting and found this and other videos. Uses a block of wood and a hammer.

    I think I might try this . I can get a hold of pallets quite easily.

    CindyD, where I live (Cda.) I'm lucky I can get them anytime, businesses put them at the side of the curb. My husband knows of a company who constantly get's rid of them. Think about stores you deal with that have product shipped and unloaded on pallets, ask. They may return them to the shipper, but they may also have to unload them. Carpet and flooring places would be loaded down with pallets if they don't return them. Bedding/mattress places. Any place that get's things delivered to them in bulk. Basically any business that has a loading dock is going to have pallets. Good Luck!
