Nothing is more closely associated with upcycling than the lowly, splintery shipping pallet.

You can get them for next to nothing and turn them into sweet boxes, benches, light stands, or put the wood towards hundreds, nay, thousands of other projects.

Jim Ether s method requires just three tools: a hatchet, a hammer, and a Sawzall.

Rather than rip all the boards out one at a time, Ether shimmies the shorter horizontal boards off the supports just enough to fit the blade of the Sawzall in.

Cut those nails and you re golden, no mess no fuss.

It s a simple trick, but if almost-free furniture is your bag, this is bound to save you lots of time and more than a few injuries.
