I’ve been cleaning out my shop so I can get a concrete floor poured. I’ve been standing on pallets in the shop as a floor because it fills with water every time it rains (sucks). I decided to give 2 A new home in my breeze way. There’s not much to say about it. I believe they were pine pallets not sure though, I left them rough sawn and stained it with minwax stain and polly combo. I will saw that since I’ve joined this site everyone here has caused me to up my game. I think about every cut, plan every move. It like my father said you become who you seround yourself with. Thanks for everything.

Very well made project, and a great use of “SCRAP” timber.

Very nice. I think this would work well as a potato bin as well. Just might be my next project.

You make pallets look good. That’s also a great and functional build. Well done!

Good job. This is the type of recycling of pallets I like to see. Anybody can take a pallet and make it look like a pallet cut in half. :-) I like to see the finished project look like something else.

Thanks. It’s holding up well with the very little bit of rain it gets spashed with. It’s nice not looking at a white plastic garbage can and the price was right. $5
