Have you seen or heard about projects that are done with pallets? Pallets are a great source of wood for almost any type of DIY project. One thing about pallets you need to know is how to reclaim all the usable wood. The process of reclaiming pallet wood will be easier than you think.

Pallets come in different types and means you need to determine what you will need when you want to start reclaiming pallet wood. A standard shipping pallet is the most common to use and will come in a variety of types you need to be aware of.

Do not look for pressure treated or chemical treated wood when searching for pallets. Once you have all of the pallets at home, you can start taking them apart. This is done using a crowbar and other tools. The process is not hard to do, but you need to keep safety in mind at all times.
