I really tried to set myself apart from the pallet making world with this one. What a fun build, and so satisfying. The legs are not as hard as it looks. It took me about 45 minutes to an hour to make them. The legs are made with old 4x4s attached to large pallets, and With some simple pocket screws, and wood glue to attach them to the top of the bench. I made the top part with hardwood pallet wood. And the sides with some old Ferring strips, and decorated it with nails to give it a more rustic feel. The pallet top lays on a 3/4-inch piece of plywood. So rest assure, this baby can hold up some weight.
