I get a bunch of free pallets from work all the time. the broken up ones we burn in our fire pit, or in our fireplace sometimes.
in our little 3 sided barn, we used them to frame in and build separate pens for chickens, goats, and bunnies.
we stack our hay, firewood, and bags of feed on them also.
we have a really old building on our property that we are going to take the "barn wood" off and use for craft projects.
I get pallets from work whenever I find red oak pallets ours are usually 4x4 or so. Some have 1in thick by 6in wide boards the I use my planer to smooth them out make shelves, bird houses and other projects. I am planning on making a worm home out of some to have a large vermiposting station.
I'm using them currently to build a hunting blind in the woods. Now that the season is underway, I'm going to have to wait till it's over to complete it. I'll post pics next spring when it's done. 8x10.

kelly, that site is awesome, HUGE thanks for posting it! or maybe not, i'm gonna burn so much time ?!! hahah!
and that fence, yeah! i am wanting to fence off more of our trees for the goats, but dont' have the money for fencing! wahoo, gonna go get pallets. i love that. so that fence, just screwed together, yes? anybody see anything else to know before i go off gathering pallets?
good score op, now i'm jealous! i have an older gal pal who built her goat shed and stalls with pallets, i was amazed.
We built three huge compost bins out of pallets. Also, we built potting benches and tables: stand two pallets up in between two trees near to each other. We just tied the pallets to the trees. Then, we cut a top out of old plywood, nailed it to make a top. Then we took boards and laid them in the slats and made shelves underneath. They last a long time and are easy to take apart if you need to move it.
