My husband and I made this after seeing a post on Facebook and thought we would give it a try. We used about 15 standard size pallets. It took us about 8 to 10 hours to build. The hardest part was taking the pallets apart. We used a miter saw, screw gun, hammer, crowbar and circular saw. We put it together with screws so that it would be easy if a piece needed to be changed out.
