Now you might be wondering why I like wood pallets so much…
Well, one reason is that you can get them CHEAP, or even FREE if you know where to look (i.e: Craigslist, garage sales, Goodwill, etc.)
This is crucial, since you’re probably not going to be willing/able to spend $20-$50 on a wood pallet once you’re in a survival situation.
Luckily, since many companies use these wood pallets for holding large shipments, wood pallets are widely accessible and can be be easily found if you know where to look.
Plus, the great thing is each pallet contains multiple pieces, allowing you a good amount of wood to work with (especially if you can get a few pallets).
Now that we’ve covered all that, let’s now focus on all the cool ways you can use wood pallets once you’ve got your hands on them…
7 Amazing Uses For Wood Pallets
1 – Build A Table
Whether you’re bugging in or bugging out, this is a great DIY project for survival. Not only will this table give you a flat surface to keep your food and survival supplies on, but you can also do this while keeping them off the ground (which is especially useful when you’ve got bugs and other critters wanting to crawl all over your stuff).
Here’s a great video tutorial for if you have a lot of free time and want to prepare by building your table now:
However, if you don’t have a lot of time, and you need to build an improptu table for your bug out camp, I’ve got a way to do that as well. Check out the video below:
2 – Build A Planter
Garden planters can be a fantastic tool for growing food in your survival garden. Plus, the nice thing is you can transform the soil in these planters (using things like compost and rich fertilizer) to make your plants grow even better and faster.
This is a great method to use if the soil around your home or bug out shelter isn’t great for planting.
Here’s a DIY video to show you how to do it. This project is so simple, you can do it over a weekend! My advice is to do the work now so you can enjoy the planters later.
3 – Build A Tool Tray
Your tools (both electric and not) are some of your greatest assets in a survival situation; however, they’re of no use to you if you lose them.
That’s why you can build a convenient, easy-to-build tool tray to hold all your supplies. This way, everything stays in one place, and you can transfer your entire supply from place to place easily and efficiently.
Note: Keep in mind if an EMP occurs, you’ll only be able to use your powerless tools to get the job done. Click here to discover which ones you’ll need for survival.

4 – Build A Fence
Survival gardens are the best, but they can be demolished in an instant when animals get into it.
Luckily, you can help keep the critters at bay by building a fence around the garden.
Here’s a tutorial on how to build a fence using wood pallets:
5 – Build An Interior Wall
Now this DIY project is primarily used for when you’re bugging in; however, this project could save you some serious money in the long run!
By building a wooden interior wall, you can easily insulate your house, thereby making your home cooler in the summer, warmer in the winter, and saving you tons of $$$ on your bills in the process!
Better yet, you can do all of this by using cheap (or free) wood pallets.
Here’s a video showing you how to do it:
6 – Build a Shed
Wood pallets are an excellent resource for getting wood to build a shed. Not only will doing this this save you a ton of money (as opposed to going and buying individual wood planks from a hardware store), but it’ll also provide you a convenient and safe storage space for your preps and survival tools.
Here’s a video tutorial on how to build the shed – this is Part One of the series. To see more of the process, you can click the link to Part Two at the end of this video, and then click to see Part Three at the end of the next one. Enjoy!
7 – Free Gifts
You may not have thought of this, but any prepper or DIY junkie would love to get their hands on a few wood pallets – especially when they’re free. And when you consider the uses for these, the possibilities of what you can do are almost endless!
Another great way to pass on your love for DIY is to give your handmade pallet projects to your children and grandchildren. Not only will these gifts last for an incredibly long time, but they also make a unique gift that your loved ones can cherish and be reminded of you every time they see it.
BONUS – How to Disassemble
Now one thing that many preppers are confused about is how to disassemble the wooden pallets once they’ve got them. Never fear! We’ve got a cool how-to video right here:
Now as you can tell, you’ll need both a crowbar and a hammer to disassemble these wooden pallets. And these two tools create a powerful combination to quickly dismantle these pallets so you can get your project started in a jiffy.
But let me ask you this…can the hammer you’re using also double as a pry bar, wire twist, hose spanner, axe, grapple hook, and tire chain hook?
…I didn’t think so.
Meet the Trucker’s Friend (aka The Zombinator) – an incredible 8-in-1 survival tool that can do all the jobs of a normal hammer, plus WAY MORE.
This is literally one of the most useful pieces of survival gear you could possibly own. Need to pound stakes in for your tent? You’re set. Need to open up an emergency hose valve? You’re covered.
The Trucker’s Friend is perfectly balanced, extremely effective, and was actually made with one more hidden use (aside from the other eight)…to take down zombies in one fell stroke. So if you need to kill a few once SHTF, this tool is a master at taking down zombies (and human attackers) in one quick motion.
And, when coupled with our super strong 15″ crowbar, you can disassemble those wood pallets in a flash.
Did I mention our incredible crowbar can also get stuck doors open, and can also help you gain access to stuck cabinets, windows, car doors, and other sealed objects?
