I’m planning to work on some reclaimed pallets and have the inspiration from the pictures.

Please note: these images are not of my personal work and are merely inspirational.

I work in the industrial packaging industry and we recycle/repair pallets for the likes of Home Depot & Lowes.

I would NEVER eat off of a recycled pallet… no mater how you sand it or finish it, wood is a porous material that can soak up whatever is spilled onto it.

You have know idea what’s been shipped on a pallet or now many times its been used, or where it’s been.

Lot’s of good uses for them…. food prep or dining surfaces isn’t one of them.

A couple of the pictures are interesting but personally I prefer pallet projects in which the finished products no longer resemble pallets. Just a personal preference though; I know the pallet look is popular. I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Have your say...
