Did you know there really is a pallet university? No, really a guy by the name of Brandon who loves pallets, designing all types of furniture, wall hangings, and projects out of pallets, has designed a pallet university for anyone who is into, or would like to start making all types of things involving pallet wood. I think it is a marvelous idea and it is a growing business that ordinary people are making a decent living from. Home made pallet furniture and décor of all types is really a big business yet people are unaware of the idea of making anything out of pallets, being able to do easy pallet projects or how to keep everything simple or the money they can make!
You can always find sources of free pallets around
your community, you just need to know where to start looking. I know in my area the local newspaper offers the pallets they get supplies on for free. All you have to do is go and pick them up. Then there are a few printing companies that get their paper stock in on pallets, and they usually give away their pallets or sell them at a extremely low cost just to offset some of their costs. Start looking around your area at businesses that might get supplies in on pallets such as retailers and factories. Give them a call and tell them you are offering a service of taking those pallets off of their hands so they do not have to deal with the issue of getting rid of them. (in fact you can do this with other items, just use your imagination).
Make sure you examine the pallets that you are getting. The type of wood you really want is with the HT stamp or the IPPC International Plant Protection Convention label. The seal means that it has been heat treated rather than chemically treated. You can get more information on the seal, the history, the purpose and intentions of the seal, and why the heat treated work is the best all around for your wood projects by checking out the Wikipedia source.
Pallets can be made from different types of woods, lighter weight pallets are usually made from cedar or pine and the heavier pallets are mde from oak and other heavier woods. Also when deciding on the outcome of your wood project think about the wood grain and the width sizes of boards.
Another opporutnity you can do if not totally into doing wood projects yourself, is to have a side business of finding and obtaining all types of pallets for from the companies that don’t want them and then resell them to people who do use them. Some individuals do not have a truck to transport and pick up pallets or to store them on their property. Another spinoff that is possible is taking any unusable pallets cut them down to small sizes and resell them in small bundles for firewood.
From a huge variety of furniture, benches, chairs, to unbelievable beautiful tables of all sizes, to storage containers, wood boxes, wall display shelves, dog beds even a chicken coop, people are coming up with great ideas of what to use pallets for. Imagine transforming a piece of simple wood to a unique, fun pieces of any kind of timeless beautiful projects, whatever your imagination can conjure up.
