DIY: Studiomama Pallet Chair

A few weeks ago we wrote about using an old shipping pallet to craft new shelves for your home. Here’s another great use for an otherwise unwanted object. London-based, Danish-born Nina Tolstrup of design group Studiomama crafted chairs from two standard wood pallets and 50 screws. Plans are available online for 10 at Studiomama.

Above: Tolstrup designed the chairs for her beach home near Kent, England.

If you go to you can get the plans for this chair. Really easy to build.

This is a cute idea. I have seen ads in my local paper for free pallets. The chair looks nice but seems like a lot of work involved. I'd rather buy one.

These look really uncomfortable but could work if not used regularly.

I agree with the serious sanding required too.
