RECYCLE CENTRES

THIS IS MADE FROM 1 PALLET 4X6 FT .THIS TOOK 1 DAY TO MAKE FROM DENAILING PALLET TO MACHINING AND ASSEMBLING.IT WAS OILED ,THEN ADDED A DROP OF NUT BROWN STAIN TO THE BOILED LINSEED OIL THEN RECOATED THE GATE.THIS WILL LAST A FEW YEARS IN ALL WEATHERS.LIKE ALL PALLETS YOU HAVE TO PICK AND CHOOSE THE BEST,BUT AS MINE COME IN LOTS OF 20 PLUS AT A TIME ,I SEE WHAT I THINK WILL DENAIL BEST,BUT ITS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE.BUT I ALWAYS WILL TRY TO MAKE SOMETHING OUT OF THE BAD BITS OF PALLET WOOD I GET..!!  AS TO THE PALLETS I WILL ALWAYS TRY TO GET THE ONES THAT ARE STAPLED?THE ODD FEW ARE RING NAILED/ANNULAR NAILED.THERE ARE A FEW COMPANYS HERE IN THE UK THAT BUY PALLETS FOR 1 POUND ,THEY REFURBISH THEM THEN SELL THEM FOR 2.50. .AND HERE YOU MEET THE ODD MAN /GUY WHO GO AROUND IN THEIR FLAT BED VAN JUST PICKING UP PALLETS FROM VARIOUS SITES/INDUSTRIAL ESTATES .IF THEY ARE LUCKY THEY MAY GET 60 PALLETS A DAY BUT SOME DAYS THEY MAY GET 5, THEN THEY TAKE THEM TO THESE COMPANYS THAT REFURBISH THEM. THEY BUY THEM FROM THEM FOR 1 POUND.SOME PALLET SLATS ARE 4 INCHES WIDE  SOME ARE 3 INCHES WIDE.I ALWAYS TRY TO GET THE ONES THAT ARE 4 INCHES AS YOU CAN CUT THEM DOWN,AND YOU  GET 9 SLATS TO A 4X6 FOOT PALLET..THE PALLET I USED I PAID 1 POUND FOR SO THAT WAS A BARGAIN AS IT WAS STAPLED SO IT WAS EASIER TO TAKE APART WITH MINIMAL DAMAGE.WE HAVE A RECYCLING CENTRE HERE IN LOUTH ENGLAND,WHICH IS THE CLEANEST I HAVE EVER COME ACROSS,EACH BIN IS LABELED,CHIPBOARD GOES IN CHIPBORD BIN //MDF IN MDF BIN // WOOD IN WOOD BIN//METAL,CARDBOARD,PLASTIC ECT.SOME DAYS I GO UP THERE THE THINGS  PEOPLE THROW AWAY IS UNBELIEVABLE? HAVE SEEN CHEST OF DRAWERS THROWN BECAUSE A DRAWER BOTTOM PANEL IS MISSING, OR A TABLE THATS GOT A LEG SPLIT,SILLY THINGS LIKE THAT ARE THROWN.9 OUT OF 10 THE RECYCLE MANAGER IF YOU ASK? MAY LET YOU HAVE IT.BUT WHAT I SEE THROWN IN THE PAST I KNOW I CAN REBUILD IT TO MAKE IT USEABLE AGAIN MAYBE REMODEL IT.AND THESES ARE SOLID WOOD PIECES NOT IKEA STUFF WHICH IS MDF OR CHIPBOARD LAMINATED WITH VENEER.I DO NOT THINK MY WIFE WOULD BE HAPPY IF I WORKED AT ONE OF THESE PLACES.I WOULD BRING THE STUFF HOME.HATE TO SEE WASTED FURNITURE THAT CAN BE REPAIRED.WILL SHOW YOU LATER WHAT I FOUND AT THE RECYCLED DEPOT WHICH I RESCUED AND REFURBISHED.ONE MANS RUBBISH IS ANOTHER MANS PROJECT. REMEMBER THIS   ( YOU CAN DO ANYTHING IF YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO IT.??.NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE ,EVERTYTHINGS POSSIBLE IN LIFE.???)
