First Step – Start by removing the red marked boards from the first pallet. You should then cut the cross running board make sure you cut from the red lines. Close the pallet’s bottom using a bit of wooden boards that have been left or alternatively opt to purchase some new wooden boards that you will use to close off the bottom. By now you should have a structure that resembles something like a wooden box. Now put the two open compartments on either side. Close the eight compartments by using small wooden boards. On the four corners of the structure you should fix in four wheels and your first pallet will be done.

 Second Step – Now dissemble the second pallet. From it you need to come up with two small assys comprising of numbers: four, five, six and nine.  The two assys will need to be screwed on the first pallet. Start creating a frame that is related to the shape that it got before the pallet was disassembled. Enjoy!!!
