Building with pallets is a trend that has taken off, and for good reason. Keeping pallets out of a landfill while turning them into something useful is a great thing, as is free building materials. We have featured a few outdoor pallet projects in the past, such as a vertical pallet garden, a potting bench and a lounge chair. To celebrate the launch of our Outdoor channel, here are five more outdoor pallet projects worth considering.
Before you get started, read the excellent Instructables article 'How to Determine if a Wood Pallet is Safe for Use,' which will answer all of your questions about chemical treatments and toxicity. Then take your new-found knowledge and get building.
