There are tons and tons of stuff you can do with your pallets.

This is a topic I can get into. I just recently realized the joys of building with pallets and have been a busy bee around here lately. First came finding a source for pallets with that taken care of I hauled around 50 of them, as well as some other wood forms, to the back yard. Then the fun part came. First project was a tool holder in the garage. Nailed a pallet into place on the wall and wham all of my tools fit in there safe and secure.

Then a chicken run for the flock during the day. The flock is still quite young so they need to be inside at night as it is cold and I am still working on the coop. Next up a fence for the animal yard. As well as a gate for said fence. After this is done I intend to make a rabbit hutch for the 3 rabbits we got tonight and a duck house for a the baby ducks I purchased yesterday.

The possibilities are endless with pallets.

:welcome I'll be looking forward to hearing more about what all you do w/the pallets.

I was watching an old, TV show (Adam 12). And, in the one scene, there was a whole stack of pallets. I looked at them and thought, Pallets! Wonder if I can grab them? :lol:

The you-tube link was amazing, but it went so fast, I can hardly remember a thing that was in it. Where's the slow down button??? :/ I needed a minute to study each pic.
If you click on the link and watch the Youtube vid, you have an option to use the pause function, at the bottom of the video view window. It has this symbol ll
(You just click on that symbol and the video stops, then if you want to resume the video, you click the arrow-point (start) symbol and the vid continues.)

My husband has access to pallets at his job that would otherwise be thrown in the dumpster. Every time I point out a really cool use for them (outdoors) he tells me they will rot out faster than other lumber. So far I haven't convinced him to bring home a single one! I have told him, though, that if he ever gets any made of the better hardwood, he better get it home, or else!

here are a few of her pics.

this is a wine shelf:


i made these, not with pallet wood but i am thinking now that would be a good idea!

the bottom one has hooks on it for hanging keys or dog leashes.
they measure 12" by 4"
i am asking $5.00 for the plain ones and $8.00 for the ones with the hooks.

Cheers for that girl! Initiative & creativity - and a cheap basic material.

Thanks for posting.
