Behold, the most beautiful pallet.

Ordered up some stuff from Home Depot and had it delivered yesterday. Look at this absolutely beautiful pallet they put the order on! I don't even know what to do with it, it's so perfect. Normally I would disassemble a pallet and keep the good boards for other projects, but this one is so pristine I don't even want to leave it outdoors to weather. Help me bros. What do I do?

      American GMAs are made by everything from factories to meth heads. The pallets are traded in after use, the user pays for loss or quality loss. But pretty much anyone can get a stack of ‘loss’ ones, fix them up in their back yard, trade them back in as ‘repaired’ and make some money. Usually it’s the other way around, ive seen them repaired with too thick/thin boards, wrong stringers, misaligned holes, holes clearly sawn off the line with a jigsaw etc. But sometimes they have planed boards and are nailed perfectly

        Frequently at my job we get pallets that looked like some drunk hobo reused old nails and the thinnest wood they could find, is that really what's been happening this whole time?

          I will use this thread to ask my own autistic question
          How do you actually get pallets? I see people driving around with pallets stacked in their truck to the heavens. Do you like just ask a store? Whats the process here? I have autism.

          Normally pallets can be traded in with the suppliers. But if they are too broken then the factories (or the suppliers) sell them to usually a pallet contractor. The contractor buys all their broken pallets and sells them back repaired ones. These contractors in turn hire people to do the actual repairs, but anyone with a hammer can do it and they find cheapest bidder. The margins are already pretty low (maybe $4/pal) so in the end the work is done by people willing to repair pallets all day for $2 per pallet.

    Probably seal it and use it as a table, I'd guess. I'd think cutting it down the middle to make a counter top would look nice in the garage or something, but if you don't want to divide it up at all, there aren't a ton of options for a big wooden rectangle.

    You could also paint Live, Laugh, Love and hang it on your living room wall.

      they don't even ask if they can take pallets most of the time, they just trespass with their shitty home made trailer and start taking them

      my company returns our pallets to our shipper for credit, but they only want full trailers at a time so we have to stack them up till we get enough. i've had to chase multiple idiots off and almost called the cops on one that wouldn't give back the stack he loaded on his trailer before I caught him.

          our supplier charges us ~$10 a pallet, and we get reimbursed plus a couple bucks per pallet (incase pallets break while we have them) when we send them all back. this started when the 'rona started. before that, they wouldn't charge us at all, and we used the pallets for our own shipments.

          it's not a big issue, because the extra spiff per pallet is enough that we can still use the pallets for our own shipments and customers usually don't want to keep the pallets so they come back to us.

      Work somewhere with freight.
      Pallets are not always returned in cycles, sometimes they go places they shouldn’t and end up piling in corners.
      For example, I manage a cross dock, it’s like a sorting center but on a pallet scale, no small parcels. So in turn in the cycle of freight moving from part manufacturers, to us, to assembly plants, there’s a whole return system of empty containers that come back to us, and we send back to the part manufacturers.
      Well, that’s for plastic returnable containers. But sometimes the plants don’t recycle their pallets or don’t use them all for assembled items, so we get the occasional stack of wooden pallets.
      The suppliers don’t want them all the time, some of them only use new pallets, or have other stores of pallets. So we have this growing pile of used pallets.
      Most go off when we have a trailers worth to be recycled, but they’re undesirable, you can just bring them home whenever you want.

      Most of my rear deck is made of the choice pallets I took home from work.

      Yes some of them have chemicals on them to treat them. A lot of them do not. Some building materials also have chemicals on them. Pressure treated lumber for example. They are treated to prevent rot from ground contact. Probably best not to carve a wooden plate out of some and eat a meal off of it every day.

      Saying all pallets are toxic is a truly moronic take.

        It is usually marked in the pallet if it's treated somehow. I don't use pallets in projects as I can't know what other users have done whit them. They could've been used to transport God-knows-what materials and chemicals that may have been spilled all over the pallet.

              I don't think they're as unusable as you think they are. Not huffing wood dust and avoiding anything painted is a given, and you could pick up pallets from companies with tighter safety requirements for shipping to be safe. They're not radioactive and no sane person is going to make a wooden kitchen spoon out of them. Your whataboutisms are non-issues.

    Totally don't worry about what might have been spilled on the pallet during its service life. It will be fine. Its not like it is unsealed wood that will soak up everything it touches. Sure, it may have sit in the alley between a Chinese restaurant and dive bar for a month before it was reused and set to wherever you got it from, but that doesn't matter. You don't know where its been and that means nothing weird/bad happened to it.
