60+ Amazing Designs Using Reclaimed Pallets. Photo (With Permission) – http://arcticplank.com/
It’s great (and let’s be honest, a little surprising) to be able to use the words “reclaimed pallets” and “style” in the same sentence! 😉 This page will show you just how creative human beings can be with reclaimed materials and gives us all sorts of ideas for upcycling used pallets. From furniture to flooring and artwork to gardening, here you’ll find so many ideas for re-using pallets. It’s really rewarding to make good use of timber that would otherwise end up in the trash – as around 150 million pallets end up there every year! That’s a lot of tree, folks.
Pallets provide a great source of timber for DIY projects. Hardwood is sometimes used to make them too, which would otherwise be expensive to buy – it means you’ll need to drill holes and use screws rather than nailing pieces together; but your finished piece will be very strong and long lasting! Here’s a link that gives good advice for taking your pallets apart: http://dishfunctionaldesigns.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/how-to-disassemble-wooden-shipping.html
Please be careful when selecting your pallets! It’s important to stay safe when reclaiming pallet timber – try to find out what the pallets have been used to transport (that they are clean and non-toxic) and how the timber has been treated to preserve it. A mark of “HT” will tell you that the wood has been heat treated, so doesn’t contain wood preservatives; “CT” denotes that it is chemically treated. Pressure treated timber in many countries has now been made much safer although there are still some risks involved – please read this page if you’re planning to use it: http://www.naturalhandyman.com/iip/infxtra/infptforraisedgardens.html
Burning pallet wood is not to be recommended due to the danger of releasing either contaminants or chemicals used in treating the timber.
It is definitely advisable to wear a mask to avoid inhaling dust when you’re working with wood and it’s even more important with reclaimed wood – it would be a good idea to work outdoors and then seal the timber surface with paint, varnish or oil before bringing the finished piece into your home or for use near food plants.

Do you feel like having a go? – There’s no danger of wasting expensive materials if it doesn’t all go to plan! Ok, here is the link to the full list of 60+ design ideas: http://dishfunctionaldesigns.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/god-save-pallet-reclaimed-pallets.html

Most People Don't Have The Guts To Try This:
An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:

Shipping containers are all the rage - but if you are thinking about buying one, you MUST watch this video first:
Do not, I repeat do NOT do what these lunatics did! Can you spot the "fatal mistake" they made?
There's a general belief that if you bury a shipping container you can create an awesome root cellar / storm shelter / survival bunker.
But is a shipping container strong enough to handle the pressure?

I Can't Help Showing This Off:
If you haven't heard of Claude Davis yet do yourself a huge favor and watch this video.

Don't just take my word for it... watch his short video and decide for yourself.
