NEW ADDITIONS ARE TEMPORARILY PLACED AT THE TOP
99 PALLETS This website at least offers a lot of good pictures of wood pallet projects which could serve as an inspiration for you. This listing is not really all that good in that it is what i would call an "Advertising Site" with very little real content except for the pictures which might help to give some visitors ideas for their own project(s). Picture on the right is of a "DIY Up-cycled Pallet Adirondack Chair".

CANADIAN WOOD PALLET ASSOCIATION There is some very good information about basic pallets mentioned in this website. Like for instance there are three basic types of pallets: Block Pallets, 2 Way Stringer Pallets, & 4 Way Stringer Pallets. In Canada most pallets are heat treated (minimum core temperature of 56°C/133°F for softwoods and 60°C/140°F for hardwoods for a minimum of 30 minutes in a kiln.) Wood treatment with methyl-bromide fumigation is banned in Canada. Heat treated pallets are safe to use around the home and sometimes are stamped with a small box with the numbers CA-00000 HT inside. Picture on the right is of a "Block Pallet, 2 Way Stringer Pallet & a 4 Way Stringer Pallet".

MAKE SOMETHING I think this website belongs to a different URL called: DrunkenWoodworker.com. But DrunkenWoodworker.com seems to redirect to the website linked to here. Anyway it contains a fair amount of wood projects suitable for use with wood pallet recovery. Picture on the right is of one of his projects: A Wooden Clipboard.
►I am a full-time online content creator, designing, creating and teaching the art of woodworking. I have an art background that I incorporate into my projects and focus on originality and design. What's the Purpose of MakeSomething.tv? I'm here to share my ideas and teach others the beautiful craft of working with wood. MakeSomething.tv is mainly intended for other woodworkers seeking information and inspiration but it's also fun to share my projects with others and start a conversation with like-minded makers. Back in March of 2011 I was looking to get some of my photography professionally framed for an art show. I was shocked at the cost and thought I could do it myself. I went out and bought a miter saw, started watching all the woodworking shows on YouTube and it just took off out of control from there. I never did make those picture frames but it changed my life. I spent 10 years working for marketing agencies, designing and developing websites in Toledo, Ohio. That journey also took me down the videography and photography paths which I now use in my teaching of woodworking.◄
100% PALLET WOOD STOOL Here's a nice little project for you. This is a project that will not cost anything for the wood material, but unless you already have some in stock - you will have to buy some glue & sandpaper. People like this little stool. It has been compared to an old fashioned "Milking Stool".
►I needed a little stool for my workshop for when I was carving and to just rest my legs a little now and then! I love creating things from old wood and had a ton of pallet wood I've collected over the years. So I came up with a design and slowly but surely made a nice sturdy little stool that (excluding the glue and finish) cost me absolutely nothing. I'll take you through the main steps of the build below and if you head over to my YouTube channel there's a more detailed 3 part series. This is a rather long build so please bear with me. Thanks for viewing!◄

Just send us pictures (from one to five), and if the possible, the link where our readers can find more information and a description of your work.

THE PALLET BIBLE This is really a good website linked to here. It is about "Finding, Inspecting, and Dismantling Pallets" and is an "instructables.com" article. Lots of practical information presented - problems solved, etc.
►For those of us in the DIY, upcycling and woodworking communities, reclaimed wood has been a rising force as a medium for home projects for years. Its appearance and history give our furniture and home decor a character that
people admire, and it can be very fun to work with. Within this classification of material lives the pallet, a seemingly innocuous item that is much more important than most people realize, but one that also carries with it an unknown past. Using pallet wood in your home projects can result in great-looking pieces of furniture and art, but knowing how to find and use pallet wood safely is a facet that should not be overlooked. What follows is an extensive wealth of knowledge that I've gained from both research and hands-on experience, and hopefully it can provide you with an understanding of how pallets come to be, how to find safe pallets easily, and how to transition wood from its pallet form into a handsome finished product in your projects. Though I've tried to be as thorough as possible with detail in the following sections, I'm by no means the definitive expert on these subjects. If there is any information that you feel has been omitted or that you find yourself disagreeing with, please leave your comments at the bottom and help me maintain this as an accurate and comprehensive resource.◄

PALLET SHELVES This is a very good example of using wood taken from pallets to build small utility shelves used inside a van for the personal storage of items like spice bottles and other small items.
►Van upgrades: can you tell these shelves were made from an old pallet? Wood is not only a great material to make things from (easy to cut and shape, looks good, lasts a long time etc.) but you can often get it for free. I want to show you how you can make nice things quickly, cheaply (for your van/house) from any old scrap bits of wood – or those wooden shipping pallets. I needed to make some shelves in my van. I've been doing a few modifications to my van recently (coming soon in more posts) and I needed a couple of shelves. So I took a wooden pallet from round the back of some pound shop and made my own. Pallets are all over the place. If you can't find any pallets in the corners of carparks you will find them on your local high street – or behind your local high street – like behind the shops.◄
