THIS PROJECT WAS MADE WITH LUMBER FROM A PALLET. I SALVAGED SOME PALLETS AT A LOADING DOCK AND NOTICED THAT THERE IS GOOD MATERIAL HERE. THIS PALLET HAPPENED TO BE OAK. I CUT AND SMOOTHED THE WOOD AND MADE THREE PIECES. TWO FOR THE LEGS AND ONE FOR THE SEAT. THE LEGS ARE KNOTCHED  TO FIT TOGETHER AND THE SEAT IS NOTCHED TO HOLD THE SEAT IN PLACE. IT ALL FIT TOGETHER TO MAKE A 14,5" HIGH MINI BENCH WITH AN 18.5 " BY 5.75" TOP. IT WILL HOLD AT LEAST 200 LBS.
