HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR WOOD PALLETS
Before you begin your project, make sure the wood has not absorbed water and does not contain mold. Also check if the wood has been treated for fungus or insects. If MB is mentioned, this means it has been treated using a very toxic gas. You should not use these pallets because of the presence of this dangerous gas which has been banned since 2010. However we let you know that the odds are minimal.
WHY OIL YOUR WOOD PALLETS?
It is also recommended to use a wood oil that will protect the wood while nourishing it. This will make your project last much longer.
