We made this Elegant Pallet Desk for our daughter in law only using pallet wood.  The angle iron legs give the piece a light, clean look with plenty of strength.  It features two drawers and two storage shelves beneath the smooth surface.

Build this Elegant Pallet Desk for the student or hobby crafter in your family!

The dimensions are 42" wide x 22" deep x 32" high. It has two drawers that are 10" wide x 22" long x 5" deep, with an open middle section that’s 20" x 22". There are two shelves on the left side they are 10" x 22". All the pieces were cut and sanded, and I planed some pieces down smooth. I attached the pieces using a plate joiner and biscuits. The basic structure was a piece of a pallet with both the top and bottom decks. We filled in the gaps and divided off sections to form the drawer slide area. I joined the desk together on three sides.

Making the shelves and drawers for this Elegant Pallet Desk

Additionally, I plate-joined the shelves together for strength and durability. I made the drawers using more pallet deck boards. I assembled everything together using drywall screws unless otherwise specified. The metal legs were made from 1 1/2" angle iron and attached using lag screws. I installed scrap pieces of wood on the legs to create feet that will protect floors. It was stained with danish oil and sealed with 3-5 coats of polyurethane. This project took a lot of time and woodworking experience, but it turned out great. Sadie always supervises our work and ensures we build our projects correctly.
