Pallet Workshop Wall

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.
