There are SO many examples in this little two minute video that they fly by--making me want to pause the player to see some of them a little better.

I just got done finishing an old dirt-floor garage with old pallets (or rather lumber salvaged from old pallets).

I have a pretty steady supply of used pallets at work. I've been carrying them out to the farm and waiting to use them for stuff. I have a ton of old t-posts out there already, and I realized I could just slip the pallets over t-posts to make a fence. I bolted some like-sized pallets together into roughly 8' sections, so I don't have to use quite as many posts to hold them in place. The nice thing about it is that once the pallets get too worn or rotten or suspect in any way, I can just re-purpose them elsewhere on the farm and slip a new one in their place as I go. That should give me some protection against feral pigs coming through as well, I think.
 
Time is mother nature's way of keeping everything from happening at once. And this is a tiny ad:
