This is not my first time recycling old pallets – but my first attempts at something more than a rough work bench. I had great fun:-)
These items were all made using dismantled pallets – including a couple of large ones (8 ft x 4 ft) which provide longer lengths of timber for the refectory table & benches.
The table & benches are fairly standard refectory design. The arm chairs and the dining chairs are both based on the Gerrit Rietveld “Crate Chair” design from 1934 – but using different proportions (low & laid back or tall and upright).
Note: if you can scrounge old carpet samples from a flooring supplier – these make excellent seat pads for the dining chairs.
