Today I worked on a project for my grandsons. They love to string bungee cords together and work at building things so I attached all sorts of fasteners to a pallet. A pallet is sturdy and heavy enough that it won’t topple easily. If they use it without me in the future I will attach it to a wall or fence.
First, I selected a pallet that was in pretty good shape.
Then I sanded it down a bit to take off the splinters. As always, don’t forget to use your safety glasses!
I screwed in some screw eyes for use with bungee cords or whatever they come up with.
Then I drilled some holes to slide some bolts into.
I had a few other spare parts kicking around that I attached here and there.
A couple of long dowels were inserted inside the pallet and can be easily slid out.
All of the bits and pieces so far came from our garage. I purchased a few other items from our store that I have yet to attach. Inexpensive but I think they will really add to the project.
What do you think? A quick and cheap project for the little carpenters in your life.
