  • Interesting pallet

    Thinking about harvesting some pallet wood at work and spied this.

      Maybe a star shining to tell us something? That piece of wood is a very special piece! Good eye.

        That is a definit rescue for a special project. I rarely get or use any pallet wood. But did use some from the pallet that my drill press was on. It looked like pine but was was very hard, carefully checked for nails and ran it through the drum sander with some 80 grit to get rid of any small grit.

          I agree that needs to be saved for a special project. The wood is likely oak based on the grain pattern and the discoloration around the nail.

            At work (like 15 years ago) we got in some aluminum sheet on pallets 4'x12'. Those pallets were like brand new, without even any discoloring from the metals. I asked our sales rep, and he said I could keep one pallet. I removed all the 4' boards, which measured about 1/2" thick, 4" wide and 4' long, nice and flat and the best quality I'd ever seen in pallets.. Why did I want them? Almost all of them had awesome blue pine areas and the colors were spectacular. Turns out they got that batch of pallets from a pallet maker in NW USA. It would've been a 'crime' to let that stuff not be used for intarsia!

              I have harvested some very interesting specimens in the last 10 years. Bookmatched ash that was absolutely beautiful; red oak, maple, some spalted "something" and more.
              But since most of the cross boards on pallets are 3 to 4 nches wide and 3/8" to 5/8", I have few uses for a lot of that kind of wood.

                Jim google shiplap wall art. If nothing else you could make interesting backers with the thin stock.
