Often found abandoned at the back of factories, at dumps or even in skips, the humble pallet, for many practically minded people, represents a huge source of inspiration as well as a challenge.

Joe Jacobs shows you what kind of pallet to look for and provides over 20 plans for tables, fences, chairs, planters and other items of indoor and outdoor furniture. Build It! With Pallets is the ideal companion for anyone looking for inspiration and an economical source of wood, making them the ultimate recycling solution.
