Reusing pallet wood is quite the challenge. If you find quality pallets, break them down efficiently, and spend time milling them, there is actually some great wood to be found. I cut up around 10 pallets to get enough wood to build a small meeting table for my office. I ended up with many different types of wood, such as, red oak, white oak, pine, poplar, cedar, cypress, maple, a very fibrous reddish hardwood, and one more type I couldn't identify (kind of like maple but was greyish). It was a fun experience. My small jointer and planer were begging to be done after all that work. The size is 42"Lx42"Wx31"H. The base was made with poplar lumber found at a construction site dumpster. They were great to keep the base unfinished and rugged.
