I love pallet wood! I have an endless source for getting pallets from a grainery that would just burn them. My uncle made me a 4’ long pry fork that goes between the rails and under the boards and pops them up pretty easy. I plane most of them but some are pretty twisted. I’ve thought about cutting the top off of a 55 gallon drum, filling it with water for soaking the boards in for a few days and then stick stacking them to dry. There is some really beautiful hard pallet wood.

I need one of those hand held metal detectors though.
