Make your own pallet chair

I like a pallet. How could you not? They are the ultimate raw material for beginner recyclers. I've already written about a clever house and some cinema seating made from them – all very inspiring, but a bit daunting if you aren't a seasoned woodworker, perhaps.

Not any more. The other week, I wrote about a stunning new house designed by Studiomama, an interesting company with a focus on making the most of small spaces and recycled creations. And while raking through their website, I discovered an excellent innovation: downloadable PDF instructions for making your own furniture, including pallet chairs. Just like these (for Studiomama by some rather well-known names)...

Fancy knocking up one of these yourselves? 

Download illustrated instructions in PDF form, see left, starting at £10 (though some are free), from the Studiomama webstore – for chairs like these (minus the internationally renowned artist finishes, depending on who you are of course), as well as a sleek pallet lamp, an upright chair, kids' room, bench, stool and this rather marvellous outdoor kitchen.
