Measure Side Openings

For a more finished, cohesive look, cap off the pallet’s open ends with discarded planks cut to size. To ensure a tight fit, use measuring tape to determine proper dimensions needed to fill the open gap.

Tip: Pallets shift a lot during transport, so not all sides will be exactly the same. It’s important to measure each open end individually to ensure the proper fit.

Mark and Cut End Caps

Once proper dimensions are taken, mark each of the two discarded planks to the proper size of side openings with pencil or marker.

Referring to marks, cut discarded planks into end caps using saw.

Drill End-Cap Holes and Attach

Using a drill bit and drill, pre-drill holes through the cut end cap and into the side of the pallet.

Attach end caps to open gap, then secure through pre-drilled holes with wood screws.
