I have taken apart many a pallet over the years and it is not always an easy task. Of course, I try and take them apart nail by nail and then eventually get frustrated and get out the circular saw and just rip them into smaller chunks. 9 times out of 10, this wood ends up in my fireplace.
I like this method as it is fast and gets good results. I keep forgetting that for something that is going to be painted, that the nail holes are no big deal and will be covered over.
Most of the #pallets I find are fairly well made and of hardwood. They are everywhere and I am picky as to what I pick up unless they are just for firewood. Then anything is fair game.
Pallet projects are everywhere. #iheartpallets! The only problem with them is taking them apart…what a hassle. Using a hammer to take out the nails takes forever and a crowbar can damage the wood. Old World Garden Farms has another method that takes only 5 minutes and they want to let us in on the secret! One word: Sawzall. You need to see what all the fuss is about!
