Deutsch What took shape in the first part of the Pallet Canvas Chair DIY Howto is now finished. After the lounge chair was grinded, mounted and glazed, the provisional wiring/chaining had to be put in a sustaineable form, and at last, there was a critical lack of cushioning 🙂 Addendum regarding the varnish: I went with a transparent glaze, criteria were suitability for outdoor use/weather resistance and lowest possible toxilogical […]

Deutsch Part one – i hadn’t all needed materials to have this canvas chair completed in one afternoon. Nevertheless, it should be a feasable task for *one* afternoon if you have all needed stuff at hand. Garden furniture made of pallets seems a Good Thing(tm) to do: robust material, the looks match to garden/outdoor usage and if you place your furniture once and leave it (means: not take it into […]

Deutsch While my original pallet sofa was L-shaped, i had a problem after moving into my new flat: the previous form would not fit into my kitchen, where the DIY-Sofa should have its new place. Btw., regarding moving to a different flat: transportation etc. was totally ok – of course the three sofa elements were some of the more clumsier furniture pieces to be moved, but they’re stabnle, they’re quite […]

Deutsch I moved back to Bochum again and take it as a good sign that just right after moving into my new home, i spotted some pallet benches right around there. They were not built in a way i would have built them, but nevertheless (or just because of this) I’d like to show those here, too, for they’re quite nnice and in a somehow very purist style. Also there […]

Deutsch Even if you build pallet desks that are designed mostly for work and the like, children may become interested into the idea of having an own pallet desk. In the case we’re talking about girls, pink would be a valid option for the demanded colour, and given my personal faibles for some ponies (although I’d never prefer Pinkie Pie to Rainbow Dash) I hardly can resist. Requests: the table […]

Deutsch The following was a spontaneous “I have spare material” thing. Some pallet parts were leftovers from other projects, so whats to do with them? I consider shelves to be less “pallet possible” – a quite heavy material for more “light” furniture, too much effort for a simple piece as a bookboard. But then again, there are the leftovers and one can create a shelf beyond the “I need something […]

Deutsch For the record: Triangular pallet desk, part 1. It took half a Sunday afternoon from here to completition, quicker than I thought. From an old bed, i had some chipboards left i used for the substructure. You can use something like that, i also thought about cutting some old IKEA Ivar shelves in form, but maybe they’ll serve better otherwise. These old bed boards were of no use for […]

Deutsch I thought i wouldn’t get another chance to test the useability of palklets for building tables, but i was wrong: my wife wished for a pallet dwesk, too, only smaller as the first pallet desk and, well, triangular. Pallet material is currently available and after having defined the form and size, i could begin with the actual work. Even better: i had a reason to buy the long wished-for […]

Deutsch My first approach to pallet desks is recommended only partially. I’m happy with the end result, but this neends not to be the case with everyone. From the aesthetical point of view, everything is perfectly fine, as it is for the practical advantages of pallet furniture in general. On the other hand theres the known phenomena that you always have to work with a little tolerance regarding precision with […]

Deutsch Pallets are large and bulky, and what you build with them, tends to be large, too: thats not entirely true. If you use a single pallet appropriately, it can be quite fun to build smaller pieces of furniture. The following shoe rack was rather a short tinkering on the occasion, as some shoe pillars started to annoy me. The time spent on it: about two hours, so thats a […]
