Create useful products out of reclaimed wood from shipping pallets. 20 step-by-step projects include raised garden beds, bookshelves, benches, plant stands, tables, spice racks, and much more.
Stemming from the success of an altruistic project that taught Baltimore schoolchildren how to plant gardens with wood pallets, the Fitzbergers have developed an entire book full of ideas for repurposing this unloved wood. This focus on reuse will inspire homeowners and builders alike to find ways to enrich their homes with used materials and avoid the landfill.—Builder and Developer Magazine
