Skip the nailed up ones. Around here, there are a LOT of Amish “farmers” with a barn dedicated to making truckloads of pallets. They saw their own lumber, too. You could take a load of “scrap” off their hands, as otherwise, they just have a burn pile going.

Check behind stores like Walmart, and such, and see if you can have a few of theirs.

Construction sites: ASK FIRST BEFORE ENTERING! Look for a load of steel showing up, and ask about the cribbage under it. Lots of time, this is either 3×3s, or 4×4s of Oak or other hardwood. If any large machinery is going into the “new place” look at the wood under it. I saw 12×18s under a blowmolder being unloaded one year! Some were as long as the flatbed truck!
