Ultimate Guide To Upcycling Pallets

In this Ultimate Guide To Upcycling Pallets, you'll discover that pallets are excellent material to upcycle into many projects. They can be as simple as a shelf, to an entire shed or even a home! Plus, they're also readily available all around us. We at 1001pallets.com think our website proves that much for sure!

Good point! But where are those pesky pallets hiding, anyways? They're all around you. Stores, warehouses, and small businesses frequently receive pallets stacked high with merchandise. Some stores do have recycling programs. Others, such as your local motorcycle dealership, may not. We do have some resources on our Where to Get Pallets link on our home page. But are they safe? We receive messages DAILY about this very subject and many other pallet-related subjects too. But there are sources of information available around-the-clock! Please check out our Essentials page and you'll find numerous resources, including:

and my favorite, the ever-expanding Pallet Tutorials page, where you get step-by-step directions, videos, cut lists, drawings, and more - depending on what our kind Crafters are willing to share about their awesome projects.

Pallets have the power of turning an ordinary-looking object into a useful, trendy piece of furniture or artwork. Pallet crafts for the home can add an individualized style to your home décor. The Ultimate Guide To Upcycling Pallets below should help you to understand a little bit more about the different types of pallets that are available. We also have provided some typical examples of pallet projects, ranging from easy to difficult/expert level.  We hope that the information provided in this Ultimate Guide To Upcycling Pallets stimulates some of your own innovative ideas. The group at 1001pallets.com hopes that you'll find numerous pallet projects that you want to build and share with our Crafters. And as always, Happy Palleting!

I want to learn the ideas.


Fiona: The “EPAL” pallets (European) are debarked and heat-treated and safe to use. Do NOT use the ones marked “EUR”. They have been chemically treated. When picking pallets look for those marked “EPAL”, “DB”, or “HT”.


i have quite a few ‘european’ pallets – its a pale wood – i just want to know if anyone else knows, would these pallets be ‘treated’ and if so, are they safe to use?
i want to make 2 single beds on wheels [coasters] that can be pushed together to make a double in need but can also be pushed outside onto the patio to sleep outdoors on a gorgeous evening …
