Recovering wood from discarded pallets

04-10-2018 07:56 PM by DaveFFMedic | 6 comments »

LOML asked me to make a pallet wood accent wall in our kitchen. I set to task of recovering boards from discarded pallets. I searched around and didn’t find any definitive information on the best way to disassemble the pallets. I did some trial and error and found the quickest way for me to disassemble them. In the following video, I show how I took apart the pallets in about 2 hours time. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/ZEX7xrofNHg

Underway again...finally #1: Healed and starting over

10-28-2017 02:51 AM by JohnTM | 0 comments »

The new one has longer and wider tines that seem to spread the strain/load on the cross members much better than the first one. I’ve also lucked into a location/business that puts out “quality” pallets on a weekly basis as well as some large plywood-and-2×4/4×...

Pallet divanTurkish pallets ;-) Here it is, the hangout and sleeping divan I build this summer in Turkey.South West Turkey is hot in the summer, really hot, so a place to sleep looking at the stars or hanging out after sunset. In spring and fall it will be a perfect place for the mid day also, so I look forward to the next visit to our little house by the sea.
