Hi Palleton, That’s a good question as we have plenty of resources to start with. But let see what’s really important before starting any pallet projects, I’ll put links to articles we’ve written to cover this:
Here you go, you now have plenty of resources to start your wood pallet project, then do not hesitate to browse our crafter pallet ideas to be inspired! Then start, try and try again until you are happy with what you’ve done! Wood pallets are a free resource, so do not hesitate to experiment! 🙂
In general, wooden pallets can be safely burned in a fireplace. However, those treated with fumigant methyl bromide (they have the MB stamp – check attached image for stamp recognition and more info here) should not be burned in the fireplaces. In addition, it should be noted that pallets may have been exposed to various chemicals during their lifetime. Apart from these concerns, wooden pallets produce a hot flame because they are generally very dry and have thin segments. When cutting pallets, be sure to check for nails, they could damage your saw blade. You may also end up with nails in your ashes, which must be disposed of separately. You should also never burn colored pallet inside your fireplace (RED, BLUE or BROWN ones). More generally, those are things you should NEVER burn in a fireplace:
Do you have any more info to share?
You will quickly realize that wood pallets can be found everywhere, or even that it will take a lot of courage to resist the urge to stop in front of each pallet you cross 🙂
Companies or businesses:
To find free pallets and given their uses, it makes sense to look for them on the side of companies that have material delivered, the pallets are often kept outside, in this case, feel free to enter and ask if you can take some of them, some companies are even happy that you get rid of them, in this case it’s the jackpot…
Think of printing shops, household appliances or furniture stores, for example. Small stores often try to give them away because it clogs their delivery areas and forces them to call professionals to clear them. The best thing is to come by in the evening just before closing time.
The building sites have the material delivered by pallets (tiles, cinder blocks, cement…). While large construction sites are interesting “spots”, smaller construction sites such as houses under construction are often more accessible. You will certainly find some pallets waiting for you. (It will, however, be necessary to be a little bold to go see a stranger and ask him for his pallets!).
Waste disposal center:
Go for a walk in your waste collection center, you will certainly come across a few wooden pallets, but the hardest part will be to be able to leave with them. Indeed, it is common to find pallets in waste collection centers, but it is forbidden to recover them! The contents of the tippers and containers of a waste collection center belong to the community that owns the site or to the management company.
In the street:
Even simpler, but rarer, take advantage of the days of bulky pickup to go around your neighborhood, with a little luck you may come across a pallet waiting for you at the end of a street.
You too have your own veins, don’t hesitate to share them 🙂

The Butt Joint is probably the easiest woodworking joint and the one used the most by non-pro crafters, it’s a wood joint for rough or rustic work. It joins two pieces of wood by merely butting them together, either perpendicularly, such as with a picture frame, or along the same plane, as when we bond several boards side-by-side to make a larger piece of wood. The butt joint is the simplest joint to make but it isn’t automatically a stable or strong joint, mainly if you rely on glue alone to hold the pieces of wood together, because the orientations of the pieces, you have an end grain to long grain gluing surface. The resulting wood joint is inherently weak because the glue does not provide much lateral strength. It would be easy to push the ends and separate the wood joint. So what can we do to make it stronger? The most common ways to strengthen this type of wood joint are the following:

For your outdoor pallet wood projects and also for other woods, the best paints to use are weatherproof acrylics and weatherproof sealers. You can get them at craft stores & paint stores.
You can use acrylic enamel for outdoor wood paintings, and normal acrylic paint is a great choice for indoor wood paintings. Enamel acrylic is better for outdoor because the increased resilience of the enamel paint will help it weather the elements.
We don’t recommend using oil-based paints because they can leak through different types of wood & can ruin your projects!
Also, make sure the paints & sealers you choose are compatible together. Some aren’t compatible & can cause a gunky blend. You can get some advice on which paints & sealers are compatible with your paint store!

Pallets can become contaminated with chemicals spilled on them during the shipping process. If there are any spills on it, either oil, food or unknown substances, do not use this pallet! Pallets are frequently used to transport dangerous or toxic chemicals/liquids. It is much safer to use only clean ones and not try to identify what might be on your pallet. Once you have found a clean pallet, the next step is to check for a stamp or marking on the sides of the pallet. You can find more information on pallet safety in this article we’ve made: Is my pallet safe for reuse?
