Turn two pallets (plus some reclaimed fencing rail) into a useful work surface for your workshop or potting shed. Every shed needs a strong stable work surface for projects. Be it potting on seeds, building bird boxes or furniture. This bench should be considered a tool to assist your work. The design leaves scope for modification to your needs, in my case, I needed a stand for my sliding miter saw but I’m sure I can find a million other uses.

The build of this wood pallet workbench or potting bench is very simple! Let’s see how I’ve made it with the step-by-step instructions below:

  1. Take two wood pallets, partially de-board one of the two pallets. Cut the second one across behind the second set of blocks. Keep the bit you cut off for shelving.
  2. Use the boards from the first wood pallet to fill in the spaces on the part of the pallet you just cut. I had to rip my boards to fit. Screw or nail the boards in place to make a platform. See the pics below.
  3. Now for legs: I would normally use pallet stringers, however, I have no pallets with stringers. So, I managed to obtain some 75mm by 50mm fence rails in poor condition but with the aid of my angle grinders and 40 grit sanding disk, I was able to make them presentable. I cut my legs to 80 cm then screwed them to my platform. To add stability I then added braces.
  4. Next, I screwed the remaining part of the pallets to the platform for shelving and or places to hang tools.
  5. The last part was sanding. Depending on where you want to use this pallet workbench, you may have to apply protective oil or varnish.
