With the trend of industrial design that has invaded the world of decoration in recent years, we have seen wooden pallets reused in all forms. Another trend in recent years, the standing desk (understand office height), begins to conquer French companies after having conquered those of Silicon Valley. Today, we are going to mix these two trends by learning how to make a high table that can be used as a bar or standing desk with wooden pallets.


- four pallets (preferably Europe pallets) - four adjustable feet - a saw (ideally a table saw) - a drill - a spirit level - a tape measure - sandpaper - a hammer - a hammer - a foot doe - wood oil - a paint brush - wood screws - zinc plated steel chair brackets - a screwdriver - dowels and screws adapted to the support wall - a pencil Budget: about 70 € Duration: about one day


1. To begin, cut four pallets lengthwise along the edge of the third batten. Keep the four pieces with three slats, these will be the four trays.
2. Turn the trays over. With a crowbar, remove the pieces from the central base of the pallet at the level of the cut part. Knock down the nails with a hammer. Keep the other part of the base.
3. Position three trays side by side making sure they are aligned. Attach the trays together with pieces of wood (use scrap wood from a pallet). Screw them.
4. Screw the adjustable feet at the junctions between the shelves. With the help of another person, lift the assembly and position it against the reception wall. Make the necessary adjustments using the spirit level. Be careful not to lean on the table until it is fixed.
5. On the first foot, measure the height at the wall and cut a wooden slat of this length. This slat is used to support the weight of the tray. Perform the same operation for the entire tray.
6. Attach the slats to the wall using suitable wall plugs. Then screw a steel chair bracket between the legs and the shelves. Our tip: if your home wall is made of a hard material such as brick, you can replace these vertical slats with a horizontal strip all along the shelf. Repeat all the previous steps to enlarge the table or add an angle as in our case.
9. Paint the slats attached to the wall in the same color as the home wall and apply a coat of wood oil or paint on the wood.


Your high recovery table is now over! All you have to do is walk the flea market alleys to find four workshop high chairs and that will be it!
