Pallet wood is like roulette. I found one slat that is some kind of curly something or other. It’s so beautiful and I have no idea what it is. I chose the pallets mainly by weight with the idea that heavier is more likely to be hardwood which in turn is more likely to be oak. It’s hard to tell by looking at them when they’re so dirty and chewed up. So far I have one spalted maple pallet runner, a bunch of oak runners and slats, some slats that are very clear and look like poplar (crisp, clean and boring) and this one magic curly something or other slat. The magic slat will make a fine accent to something. I wish I had more of it.
