Tools required

  • 3 Planks of almost 3.5″ in width from the pallet.
  • 2 Planks of greater thickness.
  • 10 to 15 sharp nails
  • Hammer, Saw, Measuring Tape
  • Sander, Brush to Varnish


  • Cut down the 3 planks using saw in equal length by precise measurement with the measuring tape.
  • Use the sander to sand the planks and then use varnish if you like with the brush.
  • Cut down the 2 planks which should be half in length as compared to other 3 planks.
  • Make an arch of these two planks to make your DIY pallet rack beautiful.
  • Join the two planks of greater length together with the help of nails and hammer.
  • Make it sure that both the planks are perpendicular to each other i.e. they make an angle of 90°.
  • Now attach the two planks of greater thickness but half in length on one of the planks which are attached perpendicular to each other. The two new planks should be on both sides of the same plank.
  • Attach the 3rd plank of greater length on the back side of two smalle planks. This third plank will be a support plank.
  • Now the final step, select the height on the wall where you want to fix your DIY pallet rack and use hammer it with nails. Make it sure that level is okay.
