LOL, you got me, I clicked to see “What now” and I have to agree, that’s the best use of pallet wood

Awesome job there! A good use of scrap wood, leaving no saw dust or mess in the shop. After my bad experience with pallet wood that’s probably the best use for it to my way of thinking..

I just did the same thing yesterday. Had about 10 old pallets out in the back pasture that I burned along with a huge pile of limbs. Trying to get the place cleaned up. Yep, turned out swell I’d say.

I use them to make planters for the garden. Mostly because I hate using good wood for plants.

Very creative A-guy, the contrast against the night is quite artistic! Just don’t breath the fumes unless you know what was on the pallets. LOL

From the pallets I burned yesterday, the coals are still hot today so I can’t pick all the nails up yet but I have 1-1/2 gallon buckets full of nails so far. I just drag my big magnet rake thru the ashes.

There is the issue of the nails left behind.

The finish is very warm and pleasing.

What king of finish did you use? I love the vibrant colors and I think that it has a lot of character.
