The classic furniture designed to be enjoyed during the hottest months can also be used for the rest of the year. You will not need to invest a lot of money; you will only need to get a couple of pallets, varnish, glue or screws. The pallets are usually made of pine wood, so they are ideal for banks because of their resistance. Here are the steps to build it: We started undoing the two pallets with delicacy, since we do not want to break the planks. To remove the staples and separate the tables we will help the hammer and the kickstand.
With the pieces removed it is necessary to make a previous design of the bench, placing the planks as we wish. In the bottom part of the bank will go the smaller pieces that will serve to reinforce the structure and make the subject is greater. You will also have to decide if it will take backup. To your liking, start sanding each of the pieces of wood, either with a coarse-grained sandpaper or electric sander.
In the case that you have to do it manually you will have to endure a heavy task. With everything well sanded it will be time to cover the imperfections with putty. We are likely to find some crack or hole. We will let the pasta dry properly to continue working. Always respect the drying times indicated by the manufacturer. Then we will re-sand to even the surface. We start the assembly using carpenter’s glue or reinforcing the different points with screws. The last step is to apply varnish or paint with the help of a brush. We will give you a pair of hands.
