The procedure is easy and takes about two to fours to complete. Start by prying off the middle board from the side with three boards grouped in the middle. Flip it over and pry the second, fourth and sixth boards starting from the top. Using a very long and sturdy flat head screwdriver and a hammer helps tremendously.
|This is what it should look like. |
Pull out the old nails from the boards while trying to salvage them for later use. What you should have after prying off the boards and nails is a pallet with four evenly-space rows, or trays. Four boards, four rows -- coincidence?
Now measure the inside of the trays and use this measurement to mark the boards. The measurements will be slightly different, so use the biggest one and make it the standard board length so they will all fit.
A handsaw like the one pictured above may appear difficult and inefficient to cut wood, but it is actually like slicing a hot knife through butter. A solid three or less minutes of hard and fast cutting is all it takes for each cut. Two cuts, four boards and roughly 24 minutes of cutting. That is if you prefer the handsaw. Use whatever you wish.
