GREAT SOMEONE ELSE USES PALLETS. 9/10 THEY ARE FREE BUT I BUY MOST IF THE PRICE IS RIGHT. AND MOSTLY THE PRICE IS RIGHT. THE ONLY HARD BIT IS WHEN YOU HAVE ALL YOUR PALLETS IS DENAILING THEM. TIME WISE . BUT ONCE DENAILS /MACHINED / AND STACKED THEN YOUR READY TO FLY WITH THE NEXT PIECE OR A ORDER FROM CUSTOMER. AS NOWADAYS EVERYONE,WELL MOSTLY EVERYONE ARE ECO MAD AND THEY ARE THE ONES WHO LOVE FURNITURE MADE FROM ANYTHING RECYCLED. IN OCTOBER YOU GET LOADS OF PALLETS THATS THE BEST TIME TO DENAIL THEN AND PREPARE THEM FOR THE SPRING TIME MARCH TIME. 5 MONTHS TO GET READY YOUR PALLETS FOR SPRING TIME TO START MAKING WHAT EVER COMES TO MIND.AND ITS FUN .
