I've been thinking about pallets again. 

If you've read any of my other writing on this subject -- and you're someone who likes to save money -- you know that this FREE source of wood can produce some mighty wonderful things.



Outdoor deck furniture.

101 has how-tos for these and more. (Yes, I'm guessing 101 of them.) 

99 has even more!

And if you don't find what you like there, has a 25-er article...with a link to 21 more ideas on turning pallets into "unique furniture." Oh my.

There's even a whole category on, that wonderful how-to site, that makes use of this versatile building material. 

Here's one of my favorites: an amazing shed . And yes, nearly all of it is pallets!

Or how about bottle planting towers hung on a pallet wall. (This one's REALLY clever.)

I like this outdoor lounge, as well.

Craigslist often has listings from people who are trying to get rid of their pallets. Or stop by a business that has them stacked in the back, and ask. Odds are good that you'll be able to try some experimenting with your own set of pallets, too.

     If you mess up, they'll make a nice bonfire!
