Pallet Projects

PalletPallets are a great way to build almost any project at virtually no cost and with great results.  We have built many of the structures on our farm with pallets – including our chicken coop and compost bin and garden signs!  Throw in our mailbox, canning cabinet, and shelves at the house – and you will see that pallets are the basis of a lot of our creations.  We created this page to highlight those project, along with a few tips of the trade when working with them. Just click on the pictures below to go straight to the individual project or tip.

    I have hundreds of 8 to 10 foot wood pallets used to ship metal, like new, some with 4X4, 2X4. They are going to the DUMP unless i can find a way to UPCYCLE. Please help. Any ideas are welcome. We are in Ukiah, CA.

  2. Jim and Mary, I want more info on the straw bale pallet project. When I click on the pic as instructed, all I get is an exploded view of the pic but no how- to instructions. It looks like a project I’d like to try in my yard so please send a link on the how-to. Love your projects so please keep ‘em coming!!! Thanks.

  3. I was wondering; We need an outhouse at the cottage, would it be possible to build it out of pallets and would you have a video about that?
