Had some 4x4 posts from an old stoop and needed to use them before they rot. Had some pallets laying around and decided to see what I could make. "glue and screw" seat from the braces of the pallet. The top panels of the pallet were used for cross members and esthetic touches. Total cost was 40ish if you are starting with just the wood. The legs can also be made by combining two braces together. It took me 1-day for the assembly.
