    We just found a pallet company not too far from us where we can get pallets loaded with their scrap. The one we got today was loaded about 4 ft high with boards that are half inch by 4 inch wide. 2-3 foot long. I am going to use a lot of them for building rabbit and chicken pens. But could use ideas for other uses for them. We can also get 2x4 about the same length. No nails so we can use the scrap for kindling.

    Woohoo! What a jackpot! @Beekissed built a really cute playhouse with pallets, and I built a fence to keep chickens out of my new flower garden. Those were built with pallets, but I'd think you could easily build a 2x4 frame, and just use the wood. That would be great wood for building a swing. And I used 1/2 a pallet nailed to a wall to keep shovels and hoes corralled neatly in one spot. And I could think of a lot of crafty stuff to do with kids if I had that kind of wood.
