We had these old timbers laying around from pallete pieces I believe. I picked a few out that were vastly more dense than the others. I created a right angle on 2 sides using the table saw and then the opposite sides with the planar. Glued them, ripped them, flipped them, and re-glued them. Glued up wasnt perfect so I used a router like a CNC table and flat cut them all. Cleaned them and oiled and waxed.

They came out phenomenal, the only thing is, I have no idea what kind of wood any of it is. HELP if you know any of the 6 species in the boards.

Do you know where the pallets came from? The reason I’m asking is that most pallets are deep treated with numerous dangerous chemicals to kill pests and prevent rot.

Methyl bromide was used for decades on pallets and is deadly to humans.

PLEASE don’t use this to hold food if you don’t know where it came from.

Thanks for the sound advice. The pallets are from a Amish company specializing in barns. Not sure how much that helps my case.
