    ofcourse Im interested. what kind of silly question is that?

    Ive used some white oak from pallets, and some ash, but I find most of the pallets have cracked pieces and was way too much for me to take apart and get enough useful pieces.

    I look foward to this.

    People do some really interesting things with pallet-wood. I would definitely like to see pics and follow your activities. There's just something quirky and fun about building tings out of pallets.

    Heck yes!

    Just curious, do they treat pallets with anything?

    Nails, and lots of them
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
