Reclaimed wood?

Totally! I love reclaimed wood, but pallets can sometimes be treated with chemicals as a preservative. This is great for shipping, but not great for reuse. Here are two excellent Instructables that discuss this in more detail:



Finding free wood is great, and all of the projects here can be made with found wood. Just be smart about where you're selecting from. Good luck!
