:lol3: You mean pallets! I couldn't figure out why someone would want a wooden palate. The palate is the top part of your mouth. I figured it must be a typo and should read plates! :lol:
I've seen pallets used for all kinds of things. You can burn them. I've seen people use them to make fences...obviously the country kind, and not very serious ones. I wonder if you ran them through a planer what you might get. Might smooth the finish a bit before sanding. You might be able to access a planer through a local high school shop. Just make sure all nails are out of the pieces of lumber first.
Birdhouses, bat houses, cold frames...that kind of stuff comes to mind. A compost bin...just nail three pallets together and leave the fourth side open for easier turning of stuff.
