Working with pallet boards or reclaimed lumber can be a love / hate relationship at times. But you can often create some pretty unique looking projects with these materials. In this dog feeder station DIY tutorial, I will show you how pallet boards can be recycled and put back to good use. And it’s always a major win if we can recycle rather than cutting down another tree. Your pets will love it! Hope you enjoy the tutorial!
