    LOL! If I ever make it out your way, I'll be sure to let you know! I'll post pics of whatever pallet set up I end up fabricating. Thanks for the inspiration!

    The ONLY difference from what I do is use a longer piece of 2x4 (pressure-treated) for the diagonal brace.

    Works for me!

    Skinny, with all due respect, please have a look at my wood piles. The picture above is of a wood pile that has been stacked for several years. How much dirt do you see on the wood? Yes, I've seen the mud that can splash onto the wood but it doesn't take very long to dry and flake off.

    Spikem, I've seen stacks like you mention. There are a couple of reasons I didn't do it that way. 1. I have a top planned which will tie them all together (2x4 runners w/pallets on top the runners); 2.) I didn't have much in stock for scrap 2x4's! :)
