I'm with DaninVan. SWMBO wanted to do some pallet projects. There is a place close to home that refurbishes pallets and has tons of wood put out at the curb. People load up for firewood, I'm sure. However, a retired truck driver once commented on what he had seen spilled on pallets. Crossed pallet wood off the list.
Besides, the pallet-from-table looks best with natural wood and grain. It could wind up as a museum piece in years to come. In the dumpster?
DRT, instead of pocket screws, that type of project would look best with duck tape which comes in a variety of colors and patterns.
