Pallets

Does anyone have any idea where I could find pallets for free or next to nothing? I am in the process of landscaping the yard and would like to build a privacy fence using old pallets. Thanks.

I can't help you with the pallets but I do know where you can get a rusted out '56 Cadillac to jack up on blocks right in your front lawn. Paint that baby pink and plant flowers in the engine compartment!

You would be surprised!!!
I dont know how he is planning on finishing it but, I know some high end furniture makers that make projects out of skids. Some of the wood used in skid construction can be highly desirable. Especially when skid are from india, china, europe etc...would that is vastly available in those parts can be quite rare and sought after. Some skids that i've seen here are made out of cherry, mahogany, etc.....

Open your minds!!!!

I am still lmao!

This has got to be the best post I have seen on here to date.

Who builds a fence out of pallets? Just go buy some rough cedar and stick build it.

Yeah that wood can be highly desireable, ground up and died red for that hiteous red mulch that all of the old people er... my clients... around here want..

But Uniscaper that is some funny Shtuff.
