Pallet projects

I love pallet projects because they're a great way to divert wood from landfill, and you can often create spectacular and unexpected pieces. And best of all the wood is free! Nearly every time I leave the house I see a discarded pallet either in a skip or just lying on the side of the road. So keep your eyes peeled and I'm sure you'll find one sooner or later. Have a look at my latest pallet projects, hopefully they'll inspire you to try some projects of your own.
