I found a place that takes trees down for the city and instead of grinding or sending to the land fill, he sells milled lumber. Inventory is always iffy, by appointment only, but very reasonable pruices.

The best pallets to claim are those that are used to transport landscaping rocks. I collected a good portion of one inch thick poplar that planed down to very usable stock.

Careful working with wood pallets. Many are chemically treated for preservation and these chemicals are released when you plane and cut the wood.

I get quite a lot of my wood from wooden pallets. You have to make sure that all of the nails are removed. You can then run it through a planer and clean it up. Nail holes can then be repaired and the wood is as good as new!
