This gorgeous bar features an outdoor L-shaped bar & its high chair, made from different kinds of reclaimed pallet wood. Bars like this can be ideal for indoor applications.

The hardest part was finding pallets the same size and shape. My best source for pallets is a flooring store. A lot of their hardwood flooring comes from Asia and South America. It appears that they make their pallets from whatever wood is around, in this case, sub-quality hardwood. I think the front pallet is Ipe, a very hardwood. I tried to sand and finish it, but it was too hard, and I gave up. I like the rustic look anyway! The bar top is plywood with stain and varnish. The rim is pipe insulation with vinyl stapled on. The whole thing is light enough to drag back into the garage when not being used but is held together with only three deck screws if it has to be transported.

The chair is mostly two intact pallets cut down on one side and fastened together. It turned out far more massive than I expected. The easiest way to move it is with a hand truck! I am going to replace the seat and back with wider ones and make it a two-person chair.

Beautiful indoor bar made from 3 big recycled pallets.

I made this bar from cedar wood but made the top from reclaimed wood. After I had sanded the top smooth, I painted some of the boards and then used a two-part clear coat to finish the top. It came out great! I disassembled the original pallets with a Sawzall, so I could keep the nail heads in the wood. It is a great conversation piece.

Another Tiki bar, perfect for your backyard. This one was made from 3 discarded pallets for the base, and a pergola top added (but not from pallets).

If you love the pink color, you’ll love this outdoor pallet bar. This pallet bar that could be used as a little BBQ table was made from two recycled wooden pallets by Olivier Bouvet; he added wheels to the bar to be able to move it quickly. Then he painted the bar with beautiful pink color to add some colors to your terrace :) Well done!

This bar is made of varied types of wood oak and pine for the most part from pallets of all sorts as we are very new at this.

This fully loaded pallet bar has a full-size shelf and a top serving shelf. It is equipped with two wine racks that can hold up to 13 wine bottles and it also has a wine glass holder that holds up to 9 wine glasses.

This pallet bar is made from 5 reclaimed wood pallets that were cut for the trims and the sheets. Plywood was used for frame support and bar top. Four casters were added for mobile use, these casters have locking brakes. Finally, the wood was pre-sanded for a friendly touch.

There’s nothing like enjoying a cold beer as you admire the reclaimed pallet bar that you built yourself, and it didn’t cost a cent! Plus you can have a great place to display those homebrew trophies!

I built this bar in about six hours. I constructed it entirely from various reclaimed timber that I found around my neighborhood. I sanded the counter and shelf tops smooth for ease of maintenance. I decided to leave the vertical slats in their more rustic state. I think this looks great, and really adds to our outdoor decor, and to the occasional party too.

Small bar from discarded pallets. It could be for indoor or outdoor use.

By Cédric

This bar and deck took 19 pallets; it makes a 12×13 deck. 3 of the pallets are in the build of the bar. The top of the bar is made with 1×4 smooth pine, then covered with polyurethane. LED lights were added and then other things here and there. This project took me, alone, 20 hrs. Only working for 4 hrs. A day, five days. The T.V. was added, along with a dorm size fridge.

I made this outdoor kitchen and bar from repurposed engine pallets. The pallets were used to ship boat engines and were discarded after.

By Rick Hay

I made this multi-functional rustic mobile pallet island using approximately two pallets that I sanded and stenciled. This project is a flexible design idea adaptable to indoors or outdoors. First I disassembled two pallets. I assembled the basic cart and sanded the wood. Then installed locking casters and a handle made using 1/2″ galvanized pipe. I stenciled designs using milk paint and sealed with polyurethane.

This functional design can be an island, party bar, work cart, or garden potting bench. Whatever you need it to be, it can become! By Tonya Alsen

I used 2 pallets to build this little pallet bar. The dimensions of this bar are 49 inches high by 40.5 inches wide and 15.5 inches deep. I applied a stain and sealant/moisture protector to protect it. The top of the bar was made with the chevron technique.
