Pallet Pockets

Shelves made from recycled pallet

Pallet Pockets

This is a pallet full of pockets that I made to hang on the wall, the first edition in a series of recycled ideas that have been circling my head.  I envisaged recessed box shelves nestled into the rough-hewn surface, and took my cue from the shape of early TV screens to create a modern/industrial/rustic vibe.

The pallet had a grubby work-worn look when I picked it up from the roadside. I gave it a serious exfoliation to bring out the wood grain but left the surface raw, then sliced out the recesses with a jigsaw and inserted narrow shelves made of eco-ply off-cuts.

It’s the perfect home for wee precious things that need their own personal gallery space
