DIY Shed Made From Old Wood Pallets...

Around the first part of March 2009 Butch Bridges from Lone Grove, Oklahoma, came up with the idea of building a garden/tool shed out of old wooden pallets. He was needing a good shed for various things since they moved house, and he thought that wood pallets just might fill the bill, and he would be recycling pallets that would have otherwise have been heading for the dump.

Butch’s first task was to find suitable wood pallets. Pallets come in all sizes and he just happened to find a place where nearly all the pallets they put out back by the dumpster were exactly 42 inches square. And each pallet just happened to be in nearly new condition!

Butch recommends that it’s important to use square pallets. By using 42″ X 42″ square pallets meant no modifying. The less cutting you have to do to the pallets, the better, because they are made of extremely hard wood. Check out the photo’s below to see the progress of the build and to give you some ideas for your own wood pallet shed project…
