    Has anyone tried making fencing out of pallets?

    I was thinking about trying to frame large pens with pallets and put wire around them. I'd love to make them 2 pallets high, but I'm not sure how to do this safely. I have a bunch of 6 foot t-posts, so I was thinking I could try using them as basic braces.

    I figured if I took every other piece of wood out of the pallets they could be lined up and screwed together somehow into a nice sturdy base for the pens, but since they'll be permanent pens I'd like them tall enough to walk into, so it would take a lot of pallets to make the pens. I"m hoping to make them 8x16 or larger, 3 in a row.
