I built each one of these Rustic Pallet Bars using three to four pallets. I make many different styles, based on a basic frame & design.

Grab three pallets and build a version of these Rustic Pallet Bars for your backyard!

Tools & supplies used on my projects:

  • 18-gauge nail gun
  • Router
  • Circular saw
  • Hammer
  • 3″ finish nails
  • Carpenter’s wood glue between the wood joints
  • 3″ screws (on the 2×6″ trim boards)
  • Safety glasses
  • Leather work gloves
  • Paint (on some bars)
  • Stain (on some bars)
  • Jig saw, or band saw
  • LED lighting (on some bars)

I use reclaimed 2″×6″ wood cut to 42″ inches. Additionally, I use 2″×12″ boards cut to 5′ Long for the bar tops and. I cut more 2″ x 12″ boards to 27″ for the sides. Then I pressed all the wood before painting. Allow the wood to dry thoroughly before sanding down to bare wood.  I cleaned the boards off with mineral spirits before applying several coats of semi-gloss polyurethane.

Let the natural beauty shine through by sanding the pallets down to bare wood. Protect with a semi-gloss polyurethane with UV protectants.

Customize your bar with your favorite sports team name. You can buy the letters, or carve them out of scrap pallet pieces. Attach with glue & nails or screws.

Create a weathered look by adding a layer of paint and then sanding it lightly to create “worn” spots. Make a sign to name your bar, honor a sports team or even a band!

Add LED lights under the bar ledge to create an excellent night-life at your party bar! Be sure to get outdoor-safe ones if you don’t want to have to remove them for inclimate weather.

Add a Vertical Pallet Planter – even on the front of the bar!  Create a Porch Swing Hanger for Mason Jar Lighting.
