Can you take wooden pallets and turn them into window frames?



I have tons of wooden pallets and I was wondering can I turn them into window frames?

    Hi Charity I don't see why not! There are several ways to build frames out of pallets or any type of wood. Here's a couple of really simple designs that I did over the last couple of years.

    I possible look for heat treated pallets.

    Hello Charity, They are only made from softwood and you would have an awful lot of making good to do and striping them down and sanding to make them usable for this purpose, but that said if you only want to use them for a shed etc. then why not if you have the time and energy....... I can think of lots of other uses for them, but hey ho, don't let me stop you.....

    Picture frames - yes. Window frames-no.

    Pallet wood is not level, straight, or clean. It will chip, flake, crack, and break when you try to cut into it. It is nowhere near the fine enough quality needed for any construction such as window frames that requires very precise measurements.
