I always see lots of pallets on Craigs List for “free”. I’ve always wanted to build something out of them because it seems such a waste to throw them away or burn them.
So, this is what I came up with.
I know I know. Pallet wood is not necessarily the best to use for direct contact with soil or water; so…
I made the boxes,
Then treated them with a water based wood waterproofer,
Finally, I had some landscape fabric laying around, so I lined the inside with that.
I expect that they should last at least two seasons… Then I can throw them into the burn pile.
The best part of this project was that the wood was free, and everything else I had laying around;
So… essentially FREE!!!
Oh, BTW it took about two pallets to complete this project.
-- Imagine It... Build It... Enjoy It!
