Making an armchair with 2 pallets

This is a rustic idea to make a chair with only 2 pallets recycled. In this case, the pallets were purchased on a wholesale business that many pallets discarded each time it reaches new merchandise, and many of them have very good condition.

Particularly these pallets were not in an optimal state, because they were in the open for weeks and were affected by several rain and sun, but the end result worked and it was fun. Of course, the model can be improved, and published best models, this is only a sketch of chair, but very effective for those who want to build one in his backyard.

Materials needed:

  - Saw

- Hammer

- Nails

- Planing electrical and / or Lija (optional)

Step by step to make this "armchair-Palet"

The method is to assemble a pallet other. It goes step by step understanding this simple dynamic.

These are the two pallet, the pallet will call above 1 and below the pallet 2.

--- Palet- chair (1)

Serruchamos first two side tables pallet 1 from the middle. The part is not sawed the top of the chair where the back support.

We return to the pallet 1, which do now is remove the two central tables, that the tacos Palet 1 does not collide with the tables.

--- Palet- chair (12)

Withdrawals tables:

--- Palet- chair (13)
Well now we go with the assembly of pallets, but before that, we will proceed to cut diagonally side Palet central blocks of 1, so that when the blocks are assembled not collide with the boards of the pallet 2.
