Pallets Reborn

It's hard for me to believe, but one-third of the volume of US low-grade hardwood is used in the manufacturing of pallets and containers. There are no government regulations for recycling of pallets, but apparently around 80% are reused. That still leaves a large amount of wood going to waste.

On the upside, I'm seeing lots of great ideas on how to reuse pallets. That, and the fact that I regularly see them all around town for free makes me more and more tempted to pick up a few. Here are a few of my favorite ideas.

Pretty sweet collection of pallet and found made DIY pieces. That chair is wickedly cool. Matti
