I wanted an outdoor seating area but didn't want to spend a lot. I made this distinctive pallet corner bench unit instead, and the family loves it!
My Pallet Corner Bench Unit:
First I cut one end of some pallet deck boards into points and drove the stakes into the ground. Next, I placed a vertical pallet against the stakes and secured through the end boards with screws. Then, I attached a baton along the horizontal to support the seats. I built four square frames and connected to the vertical pallet. I installed the pallet slats for the bench seat and the kick panels. Finally, I made a small hatch door at one end to store wood for our fire pit. I stained it and sealed it, and now we enjoy our pallet bench!
