It seems to be all about pallets around here. Why? They are free, super strong, and weather resistant, plus they're everywhere. And for us, it just makes sense to use what we have or what is easily accessible.
Another recent project is our pallet stanchion with eucalyptus branches that function as the closure. Ginger doesn't seem to put up a fight.
Our mini green house is made of pallet wood and recycled windows, while the seed flats are just shortened, re-assembled pallet boards.
As for the Warre hives, the top box which is the insulation layer is made from pallet wood while the rest is pine.
The options for working with this abundant and durable resource are seemingly endless once you put your imagination to it. Isn't that just about true of anything though?
