Pallets for Pets

We are a nation of pet-lovers, from the furry to the feathery! They shower us with so much affection and bring so much joy to our lives, they surely deserve to benefit from our pallet crafting skills too.


So here are some of our favourite ideas for pet pallet projects. Remember to buy pallets for your pet projects; don’t risk using a discarded pallet you’ve found along the way, as you don’t know its history – it could be dangerous for the animals.
