  1. That is so awesome! I used a couple of pallets for camp-wood at my nieces graduation party. The scrap pieces from the wood-crib fit together to make a one person seat, like the pallet bench. too cool. For folks that need pallets I would suggest any busy distribution warehouse, get a name and call first, or ask in the office. Unless there is a Free sign, don't assume. Many distributors have deposits on pallets, like cans and bottles.
