How to build a pallet corner seat?

Hi,

Yep really newbie!

I'd like to build a corner seat with pallets.  I'm thinking of using 3 pallets but then what do I use to fix them together? Screws, glue?

Thank you.

Cute dogs and very well behaved. Our Westies would have devoured the cheese and then lapped up the wine. Did you sand the sleepers first?

Re: How to build a pallet corner seat?

Hello @missjosie

 

Thank you for sharing your desire to build your own corner pallet seat.

 

My apologies for the late reply. It's great that you've received fantastic advice from @Jason and @tony52. Your dogs are very cute! If you are joining three pallets together make sure that they are the same size and shape. You can join them together with Selleys 320g Liquid Nails Original Construction Adhesive and screw them together with Zenith 8 - 10 x 30mm Galvanised Countersunk Rib Head External Timber Screws - 30 Pack.

 

Once assembled, I suggest using the Ozito ¼ Sheet Orbital Sander to sand all the exposed areas of the pallet to give it a splinter-free finish. Once it has been sanded smooth, wipe it down with a clean rag and remove all the timber dust with a vacuum cleaner. I recommend using Taubmans Gloss White Sunproof Exterior Paint - 1L tinted to the colour of your choice. This will protect your new project from the weather.

 

If you wish to put on castors, I suggest using the Move It 75mm 50kg Black Rubber Swivel Plate Castor With Brake on each corner. The wheels can be locked and prevent the seat from moving while being used. Please keep us updated, we look forward to seeing your pallet seat assembled and ready for use.

 

If you need more advice and information, please let us know.

 

Eric
