What you will need

Reciprocating Saw

A flat crow/pry bar

A dead blow hammer or any hammer that won't make your ears bleed from the sound

Obviously eye ear and everything else protection

Nails whatever size you want but that won't go through the boards

Wood glue

Clamps

Skill saw

Saw horses

Level

Tape measure

Speed square in order to make straight lines.

How to do this project

1

Stand the pallet on it's end. If you're doing it right, it won't tip over.

2

The whole point going forward is to cut the nails off between the board and the main support beams. Like what a sandwich looks like where the meat would be.

3

Cut down one side.

4

Then the other

5

Switch as in move your body to the whole other side of the pallet

6

Cut down both sides there. Now all you have left nailed in are the center boards

7

Lay the pallet down on either side.

8

Start on either of the end boards and cut off one of the end nails. Because that's the only one you'll be able to reach with the saw.

9

Then get the pry bar and wedge it between the board on the side that still has the nail in it. Hammer and pry out board.

10

Repeat as necessary. Sorry I have no pictures. I started the project before I joined the group.

11

Figure out how wide and tall you want it and how many shelves you want.

12

Make these.

Make these.

13

I used Wood glue and clamps. Then drilled pilot holes.

14

Drill screws into the pilot holes.

15

Stand up  two of the supports you made one each end.

16

Put you small or large pallet boards across the top.

17

Clamp them in place.

18

Nail them in.

19

Flip the whole thing over.

20

Insert additional shelves

21

Nail in place.

22

Insert all the slates on top of the shelf supports.

23

Nail them in.

That's it. This is my first ever project that I have ever posted. I've never done a step by step either. Next one I'll actually take pictures as I go.

Looks awesome! I found this finish that looks exactly like unfinished. It's called bona naturale, you can see in my shelves project in my profile.
