We had a few pallets left in the garage from last summer. I mentioned to Rob that it may be time to find them a new home or put them on Free-cycle. However, upon returning from Lucketts he decided to start taking them apart and making something new with them. He decided to make some pallet trays. Here is what he came up with:
I then found two belts in my "I haven't worn in years" section of my closet. I gave them to Rob and he cut them down to fit handles on the sides. He attached the belts using roofing nails. See the belts below. I was inspired by this idea by Sawdust Girl as she used belts for her drawer pulls in her garage.
Here are the belts before they were sacrificed for this project. I think they were last worn in 2004.
Here is another look at the trays. We are going to use them for the deck this summer to hold drinks or flowers.
