How to dismantle a wooden pallet the easy way. Pallet wood is becoming really popular but pulling apart a pallet can be a real labour intensive and frustrating task if you don't know how to do it. Another issue with dismantling a pallet is that the boards tend to split if not removed properly. Pallet wood can be brittle so care needs to be taken when dismantling the pallet. This video looks at two techniques on how to pull apart a pallet.

The first technique uses a reciprocating saw to dismantle the pallet and the second technique uses a circular saw or a jig saw to pull the pallet apart.
Both methods are very effective at breaking down a pallet but it comes down to what tools you have at your disposal.
At the end of the video l have a pallet tip which l hope you find useful. Moving a heavy wooden pallet is really hard on your back so the tip addresses that issue. Make sure you stick around to the end of the video to check that pallet tip out!
