    Great job, but don't u have trouble with things falling in between the boards?

      Yeah. Carol Cole, I wondered the same thing. My thought was to put a glass top on it. Keeps things from falling through and keeps the aesthetic value as well. great job, overall.

    Just in case this hasn't been said already, if you're picking up pallets somewhere and using them in this or any other INDOOR project, make sure you're checking to see how they were treated. By this, I mean that most pallets are treated to kill any insect infestations. Some are chemically treated, some are heat treated. Only use those that are heat treated for indoor projects. The others are usually treated with the pesticide, Methyl Bromide, and this is highly toxic. Methyl Bromide has been banned in many countries due to its dangers. Heat treated pallets will be branded with an "HT", and sometimes KD-HT, which means Kiln Dried - Heat Treated. Use these in your craft projects! Methyl Bromide treated ones should be marked with an "MB". MB treated pallets should also not be burned as the smoke is then toxic. Be safe and have fun repurposing!!
