This is another creative idea to go along with the creative ideas you have already posted about using wood pallets for furniture. This has been mentioned before when you publish one of these items, but it seems not to have sunk in. I would not want my kids storing their books on this book shelf. Wood pallets are very often saturated with pesticides and fungicides. These toxic chemicals seep into the air you breathe inside your home. Is that the kind of indoor environment you want to create?. These chemicals cannot simply be cleaned off. No amount of washing or scraping will get them out. Used wood pallets do not belong inside your home. You don’t know where they come from or what is on them.

I don’t think sandpaper will address the off-gassing of pesticides and fungicides applied to wood pallets – also, some are made of composite wood, which could mean formaldehyde. I agree with RMF325 – stay away!!!!!
