I found the project in shop notes magazine, and since I had just acquired some old shipping pallets from my job, I thought this would be a handy tool shelf for my chisels and other frequently used tools. It took almost no time to build and its just finished with an 2 coats of an oil stain. The drawers should have knobs but my daughter confiscated them and is playing with them in her doll house, I can wait, she’ll grow out of that eventually but more likely I will buy or make more knobs. Sorry about the fuzzy picture, I had to take it with my phone since we lost the camera 2 years ago when we moved to our current location.

Welcome to LumberJocks. Nicely done. I saw this and have added it to my list of projects, hopefully sooner then later. Recycling the pallet wood makes this one even better.
Look forward to seeing more.

@ Dusty56, I will look for the magazine I took the plans from and post the link as soon as I find out what it is. I modified the design a little as the bottom drawers were a little bigger, and I preferred the look of equal sized drawers.

@ clieb91 I try to use recycled lumber whenever I can, when I moved into my current residence my basement had 3/4 tongue and groove wall paneling, since we had a basement leak I had to remove it all. The paneling was the original when the house was built in 1952, needless to say a lot of my wood projects materials originated from the supply in my basement. I will post a couple of closet doors I made from that wood, as well as most every cabinet & tool stand in my workshop.

Bloody nicely done! Love it. Beats the heck out of the little box thats on the edge of my bench for those go-too tools. This is going on my ever growing list of projects to get too!

Welcome to LJ’s. Nice looking project. I’d never have guessed it came from an old pallet.
