Just something to share.
We have been renovating an old house and I spend most of my time in the rocket heater forums but I decided to drag home some old pallets and have a crack at making a free cabinet.
All it cost us was some stain, hinges, handles and time. We love it.
Maybe the kitchen will end up down the same path.

I like it. The combination of hinges and handle style give it a very farmhouse aesthetic and that can work wonderfully in a kitchen also. We like our open shelves on the top cabinets, but this makes me consider making some doors for some of the lower cabinets.

Great cabinet!  Really looks nice!

General comment: some pallets are heat treated (stamped "HT") whereas others are chemical treated to kill insects, etc.  HT wood may be safer to work in the long run if you have a choice.

Thanks, Casie! We're happy with the result for sure. Especially since it only cost a few dollars to make.
Thanks, Phil. Will keep that in mind when I'm hunting for timber in the future.

Totally under estimated and valuable timber resource is the humble pallet
