I made the log store by drawing out plans of how the pieces would be fit together. I then cut pieces to size (the depth and width of my tiny shed), then sanded each piece with an electric sander, revealing a very appealing and characterful wood. I then sourced nails that would hold the slats together (I found 40mm ones were beautiful on a thicker style pallet).

I first built the base and then I attached the sides. To which I then attached the roof using screws. I made the roof by nailing slats to a rod of wood I got for free, but you can easily get cheaply from a DIY store.

I then used two squares of this rod to attach the sides to the back piece (but in hindsight, it may have been better to use metal brackets. All parties and back were nailed to the base blocks, initially.

Used the same rough method I used for the roof to make the shelf with the remaining rod I had left, and adding two extra blocks of the rod parallel to the backset to support the shelf

Engineer, Co-founding partner of 1001Pallets. I earned my Engineer degree in Aeronautics & spatial telecommunications and navigation systems from INSA (Toulouse, FR). I worked as a sub-contractor for Airbus Aerospace & Defense for more than 12 years; I was the guy who worked on the black box inside the aircraft that give its exact position, useful if you want to land in the right place :). Since September 2015 I'm full-time working on 1001Pallets.com & Recyclart.org. I'm passionate about recycling, vintage & refurbished things; I'm always amazed by the creativity of people around the world and how with their two hands and some imagination they can transform almost anything into beautiful objects, I also love to explore flea market in search of the "unfounded" object. I'm also a kind of a geek, and I'm behind the technical aspects of 1001Pallets.com & Recyclart.org, so if something is not working as it should, it's all my fault, and you should contact me for debugging purpose. In my spare time, I love going in the countryside, hiking in the mountains, drinking a delicious glass of wine with my friends and traveling to explore the beautiful places of this earth and meet other people and cultures.
