...and if you do practice on pallets, check them closely for nails, staples, and/or slivers of metal. A metal detector helps but I have somehow let a few little ones through. Not good on the planer blades.

Cedar, oak, poplar and a few other hard and softwoods look pretty nice after a little cleanup.

I made these simple crates using reclaimed pallet boards.
