When DIY-ing wooden furniture from pallets, you should follow a really easy DIY process. First, choose the pallet that shows no sign of deterioration, or the still good quality. Because although older and deteriorated ones are easier to disassemble, its wood might be too damaged to repurpose or reuse.
If you get a good pallet, you can use up to 40 feet or 12 meters of good wood. Secondly, as I talked about using Sawzall, you shouldn’t try taking your wooden pallets apart with just regular tools. You can buy a demolition blade as well.
Then put some safety measures on like goggles and gloves. It is optional, but you can also use earplugs or ear protectors to reduce the risk of hearing loss. A bit of advice for you, prop up your pallet vertically and clamp it to a surface.
Find the two sides of the slats and start your saw. Cut on one side of the slat until all horizontal slats are cut loose and free of nails. Repeat process on the other side.
