The Palettenpavillion was built in 2005 for the Skiing World Cup and was meant to be a temporary shelter for users and media to congregate, create and be inspired by the unusual, cave-like space. Matthias Loebermann choose pallets because he wanted to reflect the surrounding wooded region, while also constructing a sustainable space. It was constructed out of 1300 shipping pallets, 20 tie rods and 100 tension straps. www.aml-partner.de

Caution: When looking at pallets note that there is oft times an IPPC logo stamp. Chemically treated pallets have an "MB" stamp, heat treated pallets are stamped with "HT" -- do not use the MB treated pallets. Heat Treated pallets are much more common. Also check to see if the pallet was pressure treated, they will have an odd green tint to them if they were. Never use pressure treated wood indoors and use with discretion outdoors.

Hi. This are great ideas. I will try to find some similar products here in Portugal. I will try to go to the two biggest Portuguese furniture companies: ikea.pt and www.msjorge.com

In terms of pallets, i will try a wood manufacture in my home town.

Please note and inform people that some used pallets are chemichally treated and not safe (especially for a crib). Pallets marked with HT were oly heat treated and may be safer, as when pallets marked with MB were sprayed with Methyl Bromide, a toxic pesticide.

Often businesses will give old pallets away for free. You can often find wood pallets at warehouses and docks. Large grocery stores, furniture and appliance stores are also good places to ask.

Wishing you luck in finding some!
