Pallets in the Garden

Swing I Made for Mother’s Day

To build this pallet swing, I cut pallet lengthwise for the seating. The pallet was a heavy duty one ( 2×8 slats plus two 2×4’s doubled to case 2×8’s). Also, the pallet was extremely long. I framed this with 2×4’s for a set portion of the swing. Next, I took a second pallet that was also long but lighter weight and cased in it with some of the other 2×4 were from the first pallet and framed it. I cut the remaining 2×8’s for arms, drilled out holes in them for chain then added some bolts to the side for the chain. Sanded it and painted it. Mom lived it, said she could set and watch her birds.

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.
