Metal detector, cut the exposed nail heads off, and just leave them in there and work around it. I mentioned the metal detector to avoid running a nail through your sawblade. Be very careful when you start cutting into this stuff.

Here’s a tip with finding hardwood pallets: stone suppliers (bricks, boulders, etc) generally use some type of oak for their pallets. Forget about the ones behind the grocery and retail stores. You want the good stuff they use for very very heavy materials like stone.
