Wood Pallet Disassembly!

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.

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/
