You don’t have to wait for Earth Day to come in order to start recycling and repurposing old stuff such as reclaimed wood or old wooden crates.
The DIY Project collections mentioned above have some great DIY ideas that you can use in order to mark Earth Day, but if that was not enough to inspire you, we have made another eco-friendly collection of 18 useful and easy DIY ideas to repurpose old pallet wood. This collection is mostly aimed at people who have a stash of old, unused pallets in their lofts or basements acquired with the purchase of some large products. Well, it’s time to put them to some use so roll your sleeves up and start working on those pallets! All materials, unless otherwise noted, were taken from the Internet and are assumed to be in the public domain. Katie cut pallets in half to make the tabletop and shelf, then used old barn wood from her brother for the legs. For step-by-step instructions on making a workbench out of pallets, visit Katie at Little House of Four. As most of you know – we love to build with pallet wood but that means you have to learn a quick and easy way to disassemble a pallet. You can get a corded or cordless sawzall – but they are the king of dismantling pallets. Instead, we opt for our sawzall method – which can disassemble a pallet in less than two minutes into 10 or more pieces of great usable wood. They are the key to quickly destructing a pallet – and without damaging or splintering the wood. I have tried to sand down pallets for the projects i’m doing and those nail heads destroy sanding belts.Any ideas ? You may have noticed that we have a surprisingly large amount of DIY projects featuring shipping pallets on the blog; we can’t help it!
Well no longer will we keep you guessing at this mystery method; we came across a project on how to salvage the wood out of these seemingly never-run-out and free shipping pallets. I have more than a couple of friends who working warehousing and retail and shipping and all that and I’ve been quizzing them over using wood pallets. For a food grade cereal warehouse, they are kept REALLY REALLY clean and only discarded when they break.
For a retail store, they’ve been travelling on a shipping truck (which my retail friend says are ick).


For a construction site, we can tell you from personal traumatic the-dog-got-in-there-and-tracked-stranger-doo-doo-all-over-the-house experience that construction workers do sometimes use those as bathrooms. We have several small businesses in one of the towns near us (a tile company, a pool building company, and a plant nusery) that we have arrangements with–it keeps them from having to burn them or haul them to the dump, and it benefits our microfarm. Follow along as Premier Handling Solutions shows you how to make a fun Turkey lawn decoration for this Thanksgiving using an old pallet! And just remember before you throw them away that you can do some pretty amazing things with wood pallets! I wish I could tell you that I have already hauled them home and built the most amazing projects out of them, but alas, they still sit. Long before Pinterest was all the rage (feel free to follow me there), I took a work trip to LA. They had taken an old warehouse and transformed it into the coolest office space with these Wood Pallet tables at the center of the space.
Since then, creating amazing pieces out of old Wood Pallets has taken the DIY world by storm and I love that we can re-purpose and reuse things that was once considered trash. If you are looking at an easy project to begin with, don’t miss this great tutorial on Making Your Own Free Pallet Sign. I incorporate words of truth throughout our entire house and this is a perfect way to customize it without spending the big bucks. Kim, from Sand and Sisel, and I got to hang out a few weeks ago in Indy, and she is such a delight. Another talented sweet friend of mine, Jennifer from Blissfully Ever After, eyed this Pallet Wood Restoration Hardware factory cart, but knew it was priced out of their budget. I’m thinking some great outdoor fall projects need to happen from some of those pallet that have my name on them. As much as I love the DIY pallets crafts, you should be very careful about using pressure treated and pesticide laden pallets, especially ones from overseas. I would like to see if you have plans available for any of the things you have listed here. The wood boards are weathered and cracked, and you can see nails as well as knots in the wood.
Our photographs have all been released into the public domain, which means you can use them for any purpose.


Then – head down the middle row doing the same thing and in no time you have a lot of great pallet wood for all of your crafts!
Spotted on the subtle but noteworthy DIY Cowboy, he’ll provide you with a full list of tools needed (surprisingly comprehensive) and very clear, full instructions on how to get the most out of each shipping pallet. Coli and friends?  Pallets were blamed for some of the well-known food contamination in recent years.
Anything that you bring into the house that’s not really from a store or a reliable source should be washed down properly before use to avoid health problems or other issues.
August was quite frankly, the busiest month of my year with my Becoming Conference and taking our eldest nine hours away to college.
It was so popular that she built another one, but you must pop over to see it, as well as her detailed instructions.
My husband works for a food warehouse and some of their pallets are treated with chemicals to keep away pests and rodents. Specifically, I am very interested in the table you have pictured just under the comments about your husbands office space. Of course we’ve neglected a pretty important step in the process of wood shipping pallet projects: how to actually get the wood off the pallets efficiently and in a way that can be reused! It also seems that with these clear instructions you might actually be kept a fair bit safer from wayward nails and wood fragments that might have started flying if you just starting taking an axe to it!
We’ll start by making a two layered tussle of tail feathers by cutting each plank of wood from the pallet into pickets like a fence.
You’re going to want a little bit of depth added to the turkey, so place an inch or so of wood between the tail and head and then screw it in.
We used a dark orange stain to better differentiate the body from the tail and kept the tail as its rustic wood color. I am still attempting to recover, but I will, oh yes, I will and then those pallets are mine.
