        Were they good pallets or junky ones?

        I saw some the other day but they were really in bad condition. Really, really rough wood with a lot of black stains on them. Not even worth checking out.

        On the other hand, maybe I'll get some of the ugly ones and put them up as a fence in the section bordered by an obnoxious neighbor. Big Grin

        I'll swing by the back of Walgreen's someday when I have time - maybe I'll check out when they get their deliveries first.

        I'm thinking also of swinging by some high end furniture stores.

        the ugly ones are really a pretty one
        just plane off a 1/16" old stained wood when finished makes for a stunning look...i think its called distressed wood and goes for a premium.
        lol old funky wood costs more than new wood..only in america

        Never thought of planing the top. I think my Dad has a planer in his shed but it'll be awhile before we use it.

        Now, where DID you get that photo?! If that were my community, code enforcement would be all over that guy for all the junk around his trailer, let alone the exposure and firearm issues. He'd be surrounded within 5 minutes of someone spotting him.

        Oh, that's not you, is it? Big Grin
