28 Cool Recycled Pallet Projects: Reuse, Recycle & Repurpose Old Wooden Pallets

29 Cool Recycled Pallet Projects - Reuse, Recycle & Repurpose Old Wooden Pallets

People amaze me.I get a real kick out of re-purposed wooden pallet projects.  People have come up with some awesome ways to recycle and reuse wooden shipping pallets and it’s truly inspiring.  While not specifically survival related, the mentality of creatively using resources is a key theme in any survivor’s mindset.  I put together a collection of some of my favorite recycled pallet projects below that I thought you would enjoy.



A note on using pallets.  Pallets are typically marked with either MB which means they’ve been chemically treated or HT which means they have been heat treated.  Some pallets are also pressure treated with preservatives.  You should try to avoid using MB marked and pressure treated pallets for interior projects and gardening projects.  Avoid those nasty chemicals!

Have any of you re-purposed a wooden pallet?  Share and comment below!

  • Very inspiring post! We're needing to separate some livestock. We've certainly got all the materials, just need to make it happen.
