You have your pallets and want to start building something! But wood pallet disassembly can be time consuming and hard work. Most DIY beginners will start with a ply bar and a hammer, which is rough on the hands and arms and also can be very damaging to the wood itself.
Not everyone minds a little hard work and the satisfaction tearing stuff apart, but if you want to get the job done a little easier, using a reciprocating saw (Sawzall) with a 12″metal cutting blade, can make the job of dismantling your pallets a lot easier and will help keep the wood from splitting.
If you plan to do any type of pallet work or any renovation jobs around your home a reciprocating saw is a great investment. Check out our page on idea of things you can build with wood pallets. http://www.homediyfixes.com/7-awesome-pallet-furniture-ideas/
