Generally I find that all pallet wood is a crap shoot. Pallets span those put together from freshly cut unknown species that crack and twist in 24 hours when taken apart to superbly beautiful hard maple and oak that stays totally straight months after being disassembled – I have found some of these, but they’re rare. At least that is what I’ve found – that is, you cannot ascertain the ‘quality’ of the pallet wood is until you take it apart and dry it out completely first. My experience, however, is based only on approx 20-25 pallets, taken from random locations – usually retail or industrial.
