    Would it be safe or a good idea to do all walls with old wood pallots? I just thought this good be something to get for free or little cost.

    Skids are hard to fire retard plus a real bitch to pull apart.

    I have about 500 single and double-sided wall panels in my MN warehouse. Good price. Contact me if interested.

    Not all pallets are created equal.
    Some have beautiful wood, some are as rough and skanky as you can imagine.
    Many around here are made from oak, very hard to nail, then it might split. Real heavy too.
    I was recently given some pretty nice pallet wood it came all the way from France as crates containing car parts, I don't know what I'm going to use it for, maybe I'll go into the "Side-Of-The -Road-Grandpa-Birdhouse" business? Not much competition there....hahahaha!

    Pallets make some fun "Texas Chainsaw" type walls. But I would suggest that you build plywood walls 1/2 way up - as in lay a sheet of 4X8 on it's side - and then put the pallets above. It looks cool because you can see some things through the slats, but you can't see exactly WHAT.

    It also keeps the plywood down where people would be 'feeling their way along' and the splittery pallets higher so they are less likely to be touched.

    You can buy pallets with a fire and insect rating, they are treated for international shipment. Call a pallet company, yellowpages, and ask. They are not to much different in price.

    I love pallet walls! It gives a different feel to a haunt when you have solid walls and then suddenly everything goes pallet. We build our pallet walls by fastening two that are of equal size with 2 x 4s on each side. And not all pallets are created equal. As you will see in one of the pics, we scored several pallets that were 2' wide and approximately 8' tall. Perfect for many things!

    Pretty pictures Empress.
    I would be tempted to paint some of those pallets black and white transforming them into key boards!

    It might make a nice room or two but I wouldn't do the whole thing that way. Just the way it looks, like someone put up a bunch of used pallets?

    Pallets tend to be quite heavy compared to single sided walls If you weigh more than 230 pounds and it is all muscle go for it.


    Another fabulous post from the U.S.Department of Wild Imaginings, now in spectaclar stereo, sponsored by the Adhesives and Sealants Council, suggesting ways to stick things together since the 1800s. Not fabulous in a gay way. Your results may vary. Illinois residents add 8% sales tax.
