In this video, you will learn how to make a set of wall shelves using pallet wood.

You will need: two pallets, three flat battens, six shelf brackets, a measuring tape, a try square, a pencil, a handsaw, a sander, medium-grit and fine-grit sandpaper, some wood screws and an electric screwdriver.

In this example, we will make a shelving unit measuring 80cm (31.5") wide and 120cm (47.2") tall.

Step 1: Start by dismantling the pallets. To learn more about this, watch our "How to dismantle a pallet" video.

You will need 9 pallet boards measuring 120cm (47.2") in length, 4 others measuring 50cm (19.7") and two more measuring 30cm (11,8") which will make up the shelves, and three battens of a length equal to the width of 9 boards positioned side by side. You should always adapt the measurements of your projects to the size of the pallets you have.

Step 2: Sand all of the planks.

Step 3: Place the 120cm planks side by side.

To create a more stylistic design, lightly shift the pallets so that they are no longer aligned and form an irregular shape.

Step 4: Secure the battens perpendicularly across the pallet boards. Insert a screw into each board.

Step 5: Fasten a pair of shelf brackets at three different points on the shelving unit at the desired height.

Step 6: Attach the shorter planks to the shelf brackets.

Your set of wall shelves is now ready!
