Pallet wall shelf

Submitted by amf699 on Tue, 02/28/2017 - 11:31

A pallet wall shelf unit that I made for my bathroom for my wife. There are four shelves, with the top and bottom around 8.5" deep, and the middle two around 5" deep. I planed the edges of the boards for joining, but just lightly sanded the faces to preserve the rustic look of the boards (so they are smooth to the touch, but still have texture). The back is edge glued and pocket screws, and the shelves are glued and pocket screwed into the back, and screwed in from the backside for extra strength. I finished with Minwax Water Based Wood Stain in Ebony and Satin Polycrilic.

Estimated Cost
Used materials that I had on hand, but would cost around $30-40 if you had to buy the screws, stain, and poly.
Estimated Time Investment
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Type of Wood
Pallet wood, misc species, including white oak for the shelves.
Finish Used
One coat of Minwax Water Based Wood Stain in Ebony, brushed on and wiped off. One coat of Polycrilic in Satin, with an additional coat applied to the shelf tops.
