We had loads of wood being stored in our outhouse, it’s a little bit damp in there and some of the wood was starting to go mouldy.
In the shops, a wood store this size was between Â£200 and Â£275. This one cost me bout Â£10 for the ply, Â£5 for the stain, and I had to buy a crowbar, again for about Â£5. The pallets were free and I already had screws, nails etc from building my blanket box.
After seeing loads of pallet instructables, I thought I would give a woodstore a go.
First job was to acquire some pallets. I had access to some from work, but could only fit a few in my car at a time. Therefore I took pallets apart as I got them. Taking them apart was much easier than I anticipated, but obviously lost a few panels as I went along.
Step 1: The Base
The first couple of pallets I cut down to the width of the space I was using, to use as the base. I am using to pallet lengths (1 is slightly longer than the other). The area I am using is on a slope so I also added some supports underneath so the whole thing would be level.
I decided that it would be easiest to build this as two sections, and join them together.
I stained the base using Ronseal.
