Default club pallet

Hi all pallet lovers.. Check this out. I made a headboard out of pallets.
Also completley floored the attic. For this I recomend 'Dulux paint palets'. Reason is they are only slatted on one side and the two support beams 'as I call them' just happen to fit very snugly inside the joists. Because of this I had very little cutting to do. bloody marvelous lol.
have fun Pallet lovers everywhere lol.

Default pallet club

Forgot to state the obvious. If pallet wood is to be used inside the house remember to scrub well with bleach and water first.!!

thanks for the thank yous.

ps. something completely different. 8 years ago I dismantled completely two cookers, one electric and one gas. You would not believe how many usefull bits you can get from this....Toughened glass doors - which I used for extra windows in garden shed. Countless nuts crews washeres bolts, handles, cooking trays which people leave in them which you can't buy separately. The list is endless.

Default Club Pallet.

Dulux pallets can be found anywhere which deals in Dulux paint. Eg. paint shops, hardware shops, wharehouses etc. Always look for the cleanest and 'intact' ones that you can find. I used to drive a ford escort estate ,they could carry about 6 in one go. I always politely ask the store if I could have "one of them 'ol pallets' outside the back of the shop. They normally say yes.

happy palleting.lol

I am seriously impressed with what you have been able to make with pallets Garrazzaband and Cascade 35 - well done! We have been thinking of making a small decking area with some pallets and your work is inspiring. Those websites posted with the sheds are amazing. Thanks for sharing!

Regards
