Has any one item been reused more creatively, with more functional use and more practical application than the lowly used pallet racking? They end up looking like luxury outdoor furniture, I think. An item made for the simple task of helping to move large and heavy objects in warehouses. Has any one item been recycled, upcycled more spectacularly than the wood pallet? I would wager than there is not an object so often transformed into a useful object than this stack of wooden planks pieced together to form a small slab for the simple transportation of other sometimes more useful objects and products. I really enjoyed Abrasion Testing it, to be honest, it can be rewarding to discover how strong your work is.

And if you are wondering where to get a used wood pallet, here are some ideas: Any warehouse around the area you live will likely give them to you for free. Call your local grocery stores customer service dept, and ask for a manager. Tell them you’re a long time shopper of the store, and need these pallets. Pallets are sometimes available from printing companies too. Check in the Craigslist “free” section too. I have seen pallets there as well. Warehouses will tend to have all sorts of products they use in the management of their storage facilities like the industrial hardware from Platforms and Ladders but will also have an abundance of things like pallets so it’s well worth getting in touch with one to see if they have spares. Don’t expect them to be as willing to relinquish their ladders to you without a fee though as they are hugely versatile and the operations of warehouses often depend on them.
