Cut the main boards out of the pallet and toss them in the corner for a few weeks, I’ve gotten a number of them that weren’t fully dry. After that joint and plane and build. I’ve made a dozen rocking dinosaur bases out of red oak pallet wood and never had to do more then let it dry a little and use as normal.
I burn it in the biomass boiler to heat the shop. Except for the occasional Obeche ones that come through. If a pallet was made out side the uk it has to be treated with pesticides to kill pests and the ones made in the uk are such a poor grade of spruce, larch, Scots pine or the likes that they really are not worth the time and effort to bust up
