Chances are, you've already seen the idea for making bookshelves from a pallet here, here or here. It's one of those projects that seems super easy, cheap and fun to do, and it is. The hardest part of this project is finding a good pallet to use. These plans work for a pallet that has 6 boards on the top and 4 on the back. I'm sure you can figure out how to do other pallet types, but this is what we got. DIY Pallet Bookshelves

    they do hold a good amount of books, and since they're pretty solid you can pack them pretty full without worrying about breaking them...
