    50 Amazing Ways to Use Wood Pallets

    A few months ago I shared a video about how to find free firewood. It wasn't about chopping down trees or finding piles of abandoned wood, but about searching your town for discarded wood pallets.

    As I said, you can find stacks of these behind grocery and department stores all over the place. Of course, you'll have to get permission from the stores before taking them. They probably won't want to give away all their pallets, as they usually reuse them. However, if you just need a few for a project, some places will let you take them.

      1. Just be aware that some wood pallets are treated with chemicals to prevent bugs from nesting in the wood and to make them waterproof for certain applications. Handling these treated pallets without gloves or burning them could have serious side effects. Where I used to work, wood pallets were given away for free, that is until someone burned pallets that were green with preservative and became ill after burning the wood in a fireplace.

        • There are international codes for pallets.
          HT means heat treated and are safe. Assuming no poisonous chemicals have been spilled on it.

      2. I get 9-foot long pallets around here, and (being a natural innovator) keep intending to use them as self-supporting wall-panels to construct a shed (at least: As an Owner-Builder of 6 houses over the years) I toy with the idea of building a small basic home-unit of them. Cladding and lining, along with a basic iron/alumimnium roof would complete the job. Getting past the self-appointed ‘authorities’ might be a different matter. But I’ve done that before on several bush-blocks I’ve owned. Give it some thought. The homeless crisis is only going to get worse.
