Default Repurposed: A pile of pallet wood becomes a wood store

I made this from pallet wood for fuel and recycling storage. I only bought the hinges and felt. The wood treatment was over form another project.

It's built like a slatted shed in that the wood is not sealed but it is heavily treated to throw water. The pallet wood happened to be in 8 x 3ft panels. It's ideal for fire wood and the recycling.

Thanks for your comments.

A mates factory. I'm not allowed to say where as I was slotted into a cue of his employees who all make stuff out of them. I'm not the first to build a shed either. I do however have enough stored up to build a workshop. :D

All I can say is look for companies that use sheet metal. These pallets are 8x3ft but only maybe 4 or 5in deep. The lids are like doors and the bases need the heavier timbers broken off to be useful.
Well, in the case of my shed it is built up off one base so I was working to the size of the materials and had little cutting to do.

Headwave, any chance of telling me how you did it? Our dog kennel is a bit shabby and she's not got tons of room in it (golden lab). Would love to build her a new one (although not 8 ft tall!) Any pallets I've seen have gaps between the planks. Did you just remove them and reattach to eliminate the gaps?

They're not your typical pallet or Euro Pallet. They come with the boards close together. Like I say, the lids are like a door. They have 3 lengths of timber holding them together top, middle and bottom.
You'd have to break up regular ones and de-nail them to make stock to work from. However there are pallets that come with their boards one board apart and you could break one and use that wood to fit between the gaps. That or use a table saw to mill the wood to the right width.
