Create sturdy furniture that will withstand years of kid's abuse like this stout Little Pallet Bookcase
I disassembled one pallet that had four sturdy stringer boards. Next, I cut pieces to the depth I wanted the shelves and used them to install the legs together. Each shelf had three pallet board across which was more than sturdy enough to hold up all my son's books. Used a chip saw, but any other kind of saw would have worked. I assembled the shelf with a hammer and nails. Finally, I painted the sides orange to match his room and stained the inside shelf boards dark rich brown.
