Flooring with Upcycled Pallets

  • 60 pallets

  • easy

  • n/a

  • $350

This is my first pallet project. Flooring in our new build house.

Hunted for pallets, not as hard as I thought. Then, I bought the necessary tools and nails and it’s a work in progress. This is an ongoing project for the next two weeks.

You’ll need the following:

  • Thicknesser planer,
  • hammer,
  • miter saw,
  • pallet breaker,
  • a good vacuum cleaner is also handy.

I bought most from the local Screwfix, just to mention I also have Tourettes syndrome and ADHD.

Breaking the pallets took about two days. Planing (a half inch) and edging (70mm wide) took the longest, roughly 4 days to do enough wood for the upstairs bedrooms and landing. It took less than 3 hours to lay one bedroom floor. Try doing more with a 2 yr old wanting to help. A palleteer in training. I bought a Triton thicknesser planer for £160 and vacuum cleaner for £50. I already had the miter saw.
