Workbench from pallets...

Jennifer Linton
by Jennifer Linton
I have a ton of pallets I picked up for another project and have a large stack left. I would like to make a workbench for my carport with storage room underneath the work top. My question is, without disassembling them (which is a TON of work for the small 5' person that I am) does anyone have an ideas on how to make this and still have open spacing for storage?

    I just drew up an idea that should work fine for intact pallets. I drew up two versions using six and ten full pallets. I'd recommend using Simpson ties to secure them to each other. Both L's and Ho De carry them in the lumber department.

    I was searching for ideas for the same thing! I'm planning to stand two pallets upright and attach plywood to both ends. I want to make some plywood doors to cover between the pallets for closed storage an then use the gaps between the pallets (on the outside) to hang hooks for tools. I also plan to put casters on the bottom for mobility. My husband and I share a small garage and moveable workspace will make life so much easier! I'll share my ideas once I get them implemented. Good luck and be sure to share you finished project!
