Hello Guys,Welcome back to Mr. ATC DIY projects!I am back again with a new amazing DIY idea of making two pallet chairs. These are an amazing addition to your garden and home.I will be using two pallets for making two beautiful yet functional chairs. For most of my projects, I prefer to use pallet woods. To see more pallet creations join me on my YouTube channel MyATCtv DIY.
 I am also haring some pictures as well as drafts of DIY pallet chairs for you that will help you a lot in making an attractive seating for your home or garden within budget.If you want to see more images and videos of this fantastic DIY modern outdoor lounge chair, then check out my YouTube video Tutorial.It will give you a better understanding of the project!!!Are you ready to make pallet chairs by yourself?If yes, then what are you waiting for, let’s start the making process.As you know for every DIY project and DIY patio chairs you need all the things that will help you in making the process.So, here also we need some tools that make chairs making the process easy for me and you as well. Here is a list of things that I need to build chairs. Have a look!Things Used:
  • Pallet Wood
  • cutter
  • Hammer
  • Measuring tape
  • Screwdriver
  • Drill
  • Nails
  • Sander
  • Wood glue
  • Paint
  • Table saw

Now, I'm going to teach you step by step how to make wooden chair, with one Pallet.

With my little princess assistant!!!!Step 1: Get pallets for the chairsTo make pallet chairs I will use two Pallets. You can easily get it from any home depot. The pallets I will use are in 120 cm in length and 80 cm in width as you can see in my video. Join our refferal program to download our free 3D plane here
Step 2: Dismantle the palletsI will disassemble the pallets to use more of them for making pallet chairs. For disassembling I will use a hammer and woodcutter to separate each wooden part from the nails in the pallets.Checkout my video to get a better idea about the disassembling process.
Step 3: Sand the pallets smoothAfter cutting the pallets, I will make them smooth with the help of my power sander. This will remove the splinters and make pallet wood look like new again.
Step 4: Make the backrest of the chairNow, I have wooden pieces of three different dimensions including long, medium length and small. I will use long pieces to create the backrest of chairs.
I will support backrest with small pieces and fix them together with screws.You can go to my video for a better view.
Step 5: Prepare the seat of the chairTo make the seat of chair I will use medium length wooden pieces and will support them with small pallet. Again I will fix all of them together with the nailing machine.Note that there will be a small gap between pallets of the seat as well as of backrest.
Step 6: Fix the seat and legs with backrestNow, I will fix the seat with the backrest to make the chairs. Also, I will use four wooden pieces to make the legs of the DIY outdoor chair.I will fix the legs in a criss-cross way to both sides to make the chair look modern and attractive.
Step 7: Give finish to chairsNow, I am ready with the chairs. To give them a fine touch I will make them smooth with the sander and will apply a coat of protective paint to make them look like modern chairs.
You can place attractive yet simple pallet furniture pieces anywhere in your home be it a garden or study room. These chairs will increase the curb appeal of your space. I hope that you like this project and if this is the case, leave a comment below to let me know what you think!

    Hello Mr. ATC, Every time you post one of your projects on Hometalk makes me smile and this time was no exception. The design and use of pallets for this chair is VERY well done. Thank you for sharing your process. I am wondering since I think you live overseas if the pallets made there are chemical free. Here in the USA they are thankfully marked with codes to tell people if they can be used at home.

    I did try to get your plans for this chair but had to go through a process of getting points to get them???? Not sure what that is about but was a bit put off by that and not being able to get the download of the chair plans. Anyway, thank you again for your great ideas.
