Build your own Wooden Pallet Furniture
Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on ready-made wooden furniture for your home, why not build your own Wooden Pallet Furniture for you and your family to enjoy?
Maybe you’re a hobbyist looking to make some extra money on the side, or a budding Entrepreneur who likes the idea of taking wooden pallets and recycling them into functional pieces of furniture.
Either way, it’s a practical idea whose time has come, and one that requires pretty basic tools you probably already have lying around the house.
Let me give you a few ideas to get you started;
WHERE TO FIND WOODEN PALLETS:
Contact your local Construction Companies, oftentimes they receive materials delivered on pallets and toss them away into the dumpster. Pay attention to the new housing developments when you drive by, if you see pallets, stop and ask if you can have them.
The worst they can do is say no, right?
Also, check out your local Home & Garden Centers and Nurseries, they usually receive their shipments on wooden pallets as well. Hardware stores, and others that receive tool shipments, Lawn mowers, and stone, brick….you get the idea. Sure, you can pull out your phone and make a few phone calls, but it’s better to check them out in person.
It’s easy to say no to a voice on the phone, and besides, you need to build a relationship with your wooden pallet provider. They need to know that they can trust you, that you aren’t going to fink out on them and leave them holding a bunch of wood you promised to come and get from them, – but you never showed up.
TIP * * Please make sure you stick with whatever arrangements you make to pick up your wooden pallets, or let your provider know if something comes up and you need to change the arrangement time, date, place, -you get the idea.
Once you’ve started collecting your wooden pallets, you’ll have to gather your tools you’re your pallets apart, organize them into sizes.
TURN YOUR HOBBY INTO A BUSINESS:
TIP** After you try your hand at a few projects, if you decide this is a Business you want to create for yourself, contact your local Small Business Administration for advice and guidance. The SBA (Small Business Administration)can help you assess the marketability of your product, guide you through writing a Small Business Plan, and they offer valuable advice on ranging from financing, licenses and permits needed, marketing your product, as well as Grants and Loans available to you.
