    Not sure where this thread belongs, but I had to give the link for this video.

    It's pretty fast, so you may need to pause when you want, but with interest on here of pallets, I just had to share.

    Cool slideshow! Thanks for sharing. I should start picking up pallets I see on the roadside. Most folks throw 'em out.

    Where can you find pallets that are free to take?
    I've never seen any other than at work (I work in an unloading center)

    If I had a way to get them home I'd be using a ton. OMG I saw things on the slide that I actually need to make. I have no storage and I have a huge yard, but gave away my yard furniture. Shelves? Couches?? OMG

    Quote:I've wanted to do that, but like I said, no way to get them here. Last week I could have gotten 20 6ft ??? pallets, but no way to pick them up.

    My coop started out as a pallet and it went from there. You can see the steps I have taken on my BYC Page. Pallets dont get the recognition they deserve... [​IMG]
