Hello all.. Its Saturday Feb 13th the day before Valentines Day and I’ve been very very busy building for spring.. The orders pile up quickly. I’m making raised garden beds. But I’m making from reclaimed CLEAN pallets. Its not hard to find the clean ones just ask the businesses that your look at. They will […]
Honeycomb Pallet Shelves
Hello All 🙂 Yes i’m still here even though my blog hasn’t been keeping up.. But when you one person trying to build, promote and blog things tend to get put aside.
My Pallet planter ladder has been a huge hit and its been quite the challenge to keep up with orders, thus the result of my lack of blog posts 🙂
Today i’m going to share my latest idea to combine the honeycomb shelf with the ladder concept.
This starts out just like i would make one honeycomb shelf, and that’s to decide how big to make each shelf, and cut 6 pieces to my desired length.
On this project I cut each piece at 8 inches.
Don’t forget to cut both ends a 30 degrees set on your miter saw.
The next step is to assemble all your pieces together to make the frame of the honeycomb shelf.
After all the work of nailing and gluing your ends together you will have your framework done for your shelves. Once again i also decided to burn the wood to bring out the grain.
The next part is simple and that to make a bottom on each frame. The way you do this is totally up to up , but i like to place each piece on the one side of your frame and pencil the outline cut .
This is the time consuming part, but that just apart of building.
When i finished i had to do a little more sanding and burning. The big step was to set up the shelves to be attached to the legs. If you can align your shelves so they all kinda match it makes attaching the legs a little easier.
When i start attaching the shelves to the legs, which im using 2×2’s for this project. I pick one shelf and place it on something that will make the shelf even and off the floor. Then i attach each 2×2 on the desired side of the shelf keeping everything flush.
When i go to attach the next shelf i have a pre-made spacer that i use so each shelf is a equal distance away from the other.
When your done you should have finished your shelf unit:-)
But i wanted to change it up a little so i found some chalk paint (Tropical cocktail )
With a final touch of white on top of the chalk paint gives the shelf a nice beach look.
