How to achieve this? Step one, place two or three pallets against the wall. Step two, use a handsaw to disintegrate the pallet into the preferred measurements made to act like a table. Step three, cut it to desires size. Step four use a tape measure on the cut pallet to get the ideal size.

Pallets are wooden rectangular shapes with rim of space in between. Depending on what one wants, they can be used to creatively make a pallet wall side table.

Joel Billionaire, Book publisher and writer at Honey Badger Ltd, decided to get rid of the centre roundtable embedded with partitioned Medium Density Fiberboards to accommodate more space.

“The table was taking a lot of space and I found the pallet idea unique and interesting and took it up. There was a lot of clutter but now some stuff is kept easily in drawers that will be closed.” Also he wants to standout in the simplest means in all areas of life.

Working at a stationery street, he buys pallets from business owners who import paper, which is brought, stuck in pallets. Many choose to throw them away. Billionaire buys them at Shs5,000 each to invent fresh ideas from them.

Billionaire narrates how to put up a pallet wall side table in your home office. A few pallets like two or three are placed against the wall according to one’s room size or desire.

Use a screwdriver to fix the screwing nails from the front view of the pallet edges until it is firmly fixed to the wall. Leave some space below to allow for plug-in to the power points on the wall and for creativity.

Use a handsaw to disintegrate the pallet into the preferred measurements made to act like a table. He, however, notes that It is quite cumbersome because pellets are originally joined using hooks which are hard to unfix.

He says with the help of another person, align the cut pallet vertically unto the straight one; fix screw nails through the angle brackets below the pallet with a screw driver.

Add small L-brackets on top at the focal point (90 degrees angle) of the pallets for firmness.

For the final output, one needs to smoothen the surface by grinding it and vanish it to add touch to it. One could also choose to keep and display light weight objects such as desk calendars, pen vessels and table clocks on the table.

Billionaire also used the pallets to make a trolley by adding movable wheels to accommodate the processing units. You can also do the same.
