Love it folks. I use some in the greenhouse to keep certain pots off the ground so plants don't root into the ground over winter. DH got a pallet today that he especially asked for this morning. I thought just because it was long and slender, not the regular shape. But oh, no. He takes some of the boards off and planes them down, said they were beautiful (I haven't seen them yet) and he is gonna make something special with them. He had thought they were oak but now thinks they may be some kind of tropical wood. So many uses.
thanks alot rouxcrew!!! typed in "pallet furniture"...I can see another "wasted" day...so much to look at and drool over! also leads to site using rope! wood and rope are 2 of my favorite things...and I have the perfect lamp to start with...
WARNING...if you have any thing else to do, don't go to this site!!!! LOL
Oh no, I'm not going to start on pallets now. I have glass stored up for totems, tiles, etc. for mosaic stepping stones and a couple bowling balls laying around for another craft. Every time I see some great treasure I want to try it. I've run out of space for my things so there has to be a stopping point somewhere.
Most of the pallets I have, (I got them at work when I worked) were made of oak. They were used to ship finished products to our factory in mexico. the federal law states that pallets going out of the USA have to be made of wood that does not interest bugs, that's where Oak comes in. My DH has take these, deconstructed and reworked them. beautiful wood when done, and I have some great shelves in the house.
