5 Simple steps to make an outdoor bench by pallet

Here, we present some “life hacks” to make your lives easier and cheaper. The old pallet and woods can be turned into furniture for your backyard. For beginners, a pallet built of oak, which cannot decay is the best option.

The materials we need to build:

  • Pallet
  • 8-ft pressure treated
  • A box of star head deck screws.

The tools which we need to build:

  • Circular saw
  • Nail-pulling crowbar
  • Hammer
  • Power screw-gun
  • Tape-measure
  • Carpenter’s square
  • Marker

The time required to make this bench is 2 or 2.5 hours.

The first step for this is to arrange the pallets accordingly into a bench seat and the back of it. It’s better to make one long bench seat and then cut it into half to make back of it by attaching the shorter piece vertically and the longer piece is the seat. Now, this bench is taking its shape.

Now cut the pieces into legs of bench by measuring the height you wish to keep. And then attach it to the bench seat by a cordless drill with star headed screws. The legs are attached to the seat and back of the bench giving this view. But make sure the legs are incorrect measurements and square to the ground. To add more strength you can use more screws in pallets between the back and seat of the bench.

Now next step is to attach armrests to the bench. Now measure the wooden pieces and cut into arms of the bench. It’s better to cut off the armrests which are a bit hanging out, it would be more comfortable.


Then add some cushions and make it as comfy, colorful and attractive as you want. Design it or paint it to have a more appealing look. Enjoy sitting on your homemade bench.
