Pickup some pallets I picked up 15 today for fire wood and the wood would have been perfect for small projects.
I have no need for it so I will use it as fire wood. I only kept 3 2×4 48” not sure what kind of wood it’s between soft and hard.

It’s too bad you don’t live near our plant. We could probably load you down with pallet wood. We also have tons of firewood – already bundled up.

I go past 3-4 salvage/recycle yards on my way to the lumberyard and one of them has a sign at the driveway offering to buy pallets for $2.50 each. One of the other yards has them stacked 15 – 20 feet high.
