I would be very cautious about using pallet wood for food applications. Many times, pallets can be used to carry toxic materials, then reused to carry non-toxic materials. I've found pallets behind the grocery that still had circular marks where 55 gal drums once stood. That means the pallets could be tainted with any number of harmful materials.

Just be careful. That's all. Otherwise, nice boards!

This was a new pallet, no staining or anything otherwise I wouldn't have even considered using it for this purpose.Thank you for the information I will definitely keep it in mind.

I wish I could come across some nice wood like that. All the pallets I find are junk. I think I found one oak pallet about ten years ago. Keep up cycling!

Your pallets look good and made them into great looking boards. Like the shapes and finish. Well done!

This is the only pallet that I have found that was oak. A few years ago I replaced a roof skin on a van that was badly damaged in a hail storm. The new roof for the van was shipped to me on that particular pallet. Since then I always look over the pallets we receive and most are junk. Thanks for looking and thanks for all the comments.
I appreciate them very much.

Nice cutting boards. Something to consider, some pallets are fumigated for wood parasites.

very nice to recycle the wood. I have found if you check out your local plumbing wholesaler the get pallets of plastic pipe in that used 2" X 3" both white oak and red oak for the frame to support the steel bands and either goes into the landfill or fireplaces
