How to Make a Swimming Pool Out of Wooden Pallets for Under $80

If you’ve ever dreamt of having your own pool but don’t have a lot to spend, this ingenious solution may be a blessing. In just a few hours, you can build your own swimming pool for a fraction of the normal cost! Thankfully for all of us, Torben Jung decided to take matters into his own hands (literally!) and built his own pool out of just a few basic recycled materials. Check out the slideshow to see each step of Jung’s building process.

Jung says the project cost him less than $80, which is a much smaller price tag compared buying a pre-made pool, not to mention having one installed in the ground.

You can also adjust the instructions to make a pool of a larger or smaller size — It would just take a few pallets to make a kid-sized pool. If you want to be fancy, use extra pallets for a deck area and matching furniture. The possibilities are endless!
