I collected and dismantled about 200+ broken pallets to make my Spectacular Strips Pallet Wood Kitchen! Additionally, I used about 3000 screws and 3 liters of PVA glue, and no clamps at all. I have the cheapest planer, and orbital sander bought years ago. Believe it or not, the total cost for this project was £40! That was for the hinges, screws, glue, and lots of sanding discs.
