Pallet benches

I pulled two truck loads of pallets out of the dumpsters (I’m that guy who crawls around in dumpsters to see if there is anything good in there). What to do with a bunch of pallets? Make benches of course. I made a larger L shaped one for the front deck using framing channel for the legs. I also made 2 thin benches for the patio table out back, using just wood for the legs on those.

Breaking pallets apart

Ready for butts to plop on.

Cutting down the pallet for the smaller benches

Small bench stained, so it matches the patio table somewhat.

  1. sweet! I saw a palette bench today and was like, simple dumb, I got’s to make one, anyways found your site and I enjoyed reading you posts, good stuff, keep it up.

  2. Great idea! What brand/color stain did you use on your benches? Thanks!

    • Hi, I believe I just used what I had on hand or had picked up at the habitat for humanity restore or a garage sale. Minwax, probably a reword color. I didn’t treat it with anything to protect from the sun so it has fade some.
