Nice, but I wouldn't paint it. Probably wouldn't even stain it. Might put a clear finish on it, but most likely I'd leave it as is. Pallets are good.

yep one of the pallet is adjustable to be used as a vice, If it doesn't work i will simply place another piece of pallet and it'll be a fixed top

Smart thinking, the vise function is unusual; hey, it is a great idea!

Default Work Bench

Great idea with the vise feature. Please let us know how it works for you. Love to hear more about your purposes for your bench too. You can always make a different bench with a solid top if you have the room. I used a 1/4" Hardboard over 2X6 for my bench top; painting it white. Makes for an easy job to freshen it up every so often. The Hardboard can really take a lot of abuse. The painted white surface just makes it easier to see everything.
