In general pallets are made out of whatever wood is most locally available and cheapest.

Years ago wood working people liked to receive material from the Phillipines because their pallets were made from their local mahagony.

The pallet manufacture industry is realy quite inconsiderate.:thumbdown:
Sometimes they use some premium wood to make pallets.
I salvage pallet lumber frequently & have found some pretty nice curly maple & black walnut along with lots of oak, soft & hard maple, as well as some nice looking 'mystery' wood too.
Only problem is.. they have filled this great wood full of nails. :thumbdown:
