  • 1 x hammer
  • some nails
  • saw
  • crowbar / lever to brake the pallet apart


Step 1 - Using a crowbar or some kind of lever pull up the long pieces of wood from the pallet.  You may need to remove the nails.
Step 2 - Continue until all pieces are separate.  
Step 3 - Using a saw cut pieces of wood the same size as the depth of 2 or 3 pieces of wood.
Step 4 - Fix your long pieces these together by nailing a couple of smaller pieces vertically along the back (make sure you leave around 100mm each end).
Step 5 - Use the blocks from the supports to create the corner supports.  Nail them in from each side
Step 6 - Once all 4 sides are nailed together you can simply move into place and fill with Topsoil or Compost!
