So with the weather still snowy and cold over the weekend, and no ability to work on the chicken coop or recycled greenhouse project – it was time to cure the winter blahs with a building project!
Since this was built for a king sized bed – we built it as two separate door frames and then attached them together once in the bedroom.
We cut all of our pieces to length to start, including the cured cuts for the top of the doors. I applied glue to all of the joints and clamped them together while nailing on the backing boards. Next, we flipped it around, and added a couple of 2 x 4″ trim boards on each side as well as the top to trim it out and give a little depth.

No doubt many of us would love to have a huge, 2000 square foot building devoted to woodcraft, on a wooded acreage somewhere. The shop you see in the layout is my current setup and has evolved over many years to accommodate most importantly the acquisition of newer equipment but also better work flow. I recently met  a man  known among local woodworkers for having a large workshop with a lot of tools. This year I will be planting a large salad garden and I thought it would be fun to grow my lettuce and other greens in wood pallets to change things up a bit in the backyard. All you really need to do a little pallet gardening is a wood pallet, some good soil, and a few seeds.
If you live in the Tacoma area you can purchase new pallets from Girard Wood Products in Puyallup, Washington for about $9 each. Because you can never be sure chemicals were stored on an old pallet, or that there is some sort of bacteria lurking inside the recycled pallets, I would scrub the wood down with some bleach and soapy water and let it dry out before using it to plant anything. No two gardens will ever been the same, or have the same growing conditions, but the desire to try new things is something we all have in common.
Looking for a little more inspiration?  Small Space Container Gardening by Fern Richardson is a great place to start.  Amazon currently has Small-Space Container Gardens in stock and ready to ship.
Probably not a good idea for tomatoes, but definitely good for smaller vegetables like the peppers and cucumbers.
I had my husband staple the landscape fabric on the bottom and sides to prevent the dirt from falling out. My rabbits (owned just 1 at a time) came inside but also had a warm house ourdoors on the porch.


I am an experienced gardener (40+ yrs) and decided to plant two pallets last spring as a trial.
I think it might work for fast turn around things like lettuce and radishes, but not for long term things like beans, peppers, tomatoes or cabbages. Well Mari, I was thinking that (you need to pack the soil, some, esp under the top slats,) as I looked at the pics. And yes, as the garage became a temporary workshop, sadly Mary’s vehicle was once again the victim and banished to the driveway.
Scrap wood is actually a great choice, even if it is nicked up – adding a rustic feel to the finished piece. Get more photo about home ikea home decor related with by looking at photos gallery at the bottom of this page.
But there is a reality that goes with a hobby shared by numerous ordinary people: very few really have the means to set up such palatial workshops. Across from the lumber rack and to the right of the overhead door is the radial arm saw, miter saw and mortise utilizing a single fence system for all operations. Using a wood pallet to start a garden can be a great space saver, plus as a bonus, there is no soil to til or weed. I believe they do a bit as hydroponicists do, and prune to 1-2-3 or 4 leaders, and train vertically. I have two pallets this year and put my herbs, onions and a few peppers to see how they do. I had 2 rabbits and after they grew a little, I put them in a pen with a rabbit hutch and that still wasn’t good enough they chewed their way out of the fence. I was just thinking last night about wanting to move my strawberries to a new idea, and thinking the original regular bed I was doing to move them to won’t be great. Slats keep strawberries off the soil but do limit soil access, IF you wanted to follow Sq Ft’s v dense planting of lettuce. I had to run outside yesterday to make sure that the chemicals my neighbor was spraying didn’t accidentally land on my herb garden. Well, my husband put an add in a local swap and sell magazine and we got a call from a man just wanting to get his leaky canoe off his property. We have our lives to lead, and engaging in such a venture is out of the reach for most, myself included. This is exactly the kind of project young children would love, especially if they could have their own wood pallet to work with.
The photo you see above is a picture of some recycled wood pallets we found behind buildings last year. Everybody has an opinion, and their own way of doing things and I think that’s the best part.


I’d see the just about daily running through the yard to get the food that I put out for them and then they stopped coming altogether, guessing that they went off and made a family life of their own. Ours is a combination of both, along with some salvaged barn hardware saved when we deconstructed two old barns.
It's difficult to capture this workshop in just a few photos, so I figured I'd include a large number of photos. That means that there isn’t a time since we decided to build that I haven’t been considering these issues, and planning and changing plans.
Next on the agenda is getting the area mulched so it looks a little more put together and like it belongs in a suburban backyard. And a board below will remove too much access to the soil, for tomatoes and most squash or melons; so yes, remove some lumber below.
I did get a few strawberries, but the rest curled up and died and the beans grew well initially, but turned yellow and died at the flowering stage. I’m wondering if putting them right on dirt would allow the roots to keep growing as much as needed. I have decided they are not worth using and have changed to raised gardens the same size and and getting so much more produce in the same area..
I knew what I would settle for as a minimum, and made sure it was expendable enough to ensure I could change my mind if I needed or wanted.Shop Layout Lumber and supplies are moved in and out of the shop through the front overhead door. Should I be digging the dirt under them to loosen the dirt, maybe add some compost, then put my pellets down and fill with dirt?
I’ve also seen them with a square box frame under them with the pellets on top which gives you more depth. I have four blueberry bushes on that fence and he is always out there spraying- not a single weed in his yard. Now with an old canoe that has moss on the side, in front of the house, it has added a lot of character and the plants I chose (3 tomato 3 lettuce 3 cuke 3 pumpkin two rows of peas approx 3 feet long and an area approx 6 sq ft for carrots) are thriving. My children have always enjoyed our little raised bed and eating veggies straight from the garden but this one is so much cooler!
No weeds growing up from under, tall enough so my back doesn’t hurt when I work on it, narrow enough that the children can work on it from both sides, adds character to my front yard and best of all Cheap!! Next to the radial arm saw and in the corner is the floor drill press with accessory storage next to it for all drilling operations.  Across from the radial arm saw is a separate workstation set up with a small portable table saw and router set-up with storage underneath for routers, bits and accessories.
