Reclaimed wood flooring made from pallets and such

So I'm not cool enough to post a cool pallet project like so many other Hometalkers have done. But this is almost as cool - I happened across this amazing flooring made from pallets, shipping crates and other used wood. It looks fantastic and seems to be pretty well-liked:

    How much square footage is yielded by one pallet? Cost effective means for acquiring them??

      @Heronsnest1 Pallets come in so many sizes it would be difficult to convey. Also, when you are taking the slats apart, there are losses when they shatter. Most common pallets are 4x4 but I have several 4 ft by 10 ft. I found the local window installing companies have the best pallets and they are free if you can haul them.

    Well, look at the size of that room! Gorgeous! The floors are beautiful, but I'll bet it took a long time. "Someday" :)

    I built a 8'x 8' deck for $200 by using a 16'x 8' palet and cutting it in half setting the two pieces next to each other! I screwed them both to a couple of 2x12x8's set them on some senderblocks and used that as a base then had to buy deck boards 4x4 posts and balisters for the handrail turned out nice!

    Hi Steve, Thank you so much for writing about us! The floor featured in the image above is our Jakarta Market Blend - Tropical Mix, reclaimed from hardwood shipping crates used to buffer steel slabs on ships arriving in the PacNW from Asia. This particular installation was done about 10 years ago and still hasn't had the need to be refinished! Thanks again for writing about us. If anyone has any questions about our products, feel free to reach out to us via our website.
