I came a cross 15 pallets that were old and weather. I got them for $30 but to me it was a good deal. They were outside for a while and I got enough to make my Coffin, my Monster in a box (to come), and my grave yard fence (to come).
This is what I made yesterday. It is a full size toe-pincher. Im not sure about the animation yet. I think I will get a wiper motor, and maybe make a hand come out too.. It took me a day to build because I was using the old sweat and pull method on takin the pallets apart. When I start my MIB im going to break out the sawzall.. here are some pictures:

Hey here is a tip I got from the DIY Network. To age wood they used a pump up spray bottle and filled it with water (1 gal.) and baking soda (1 cup more I think), as the sun dries the wood it would age in just a few hours to a gray look. Maybe a good use for that old box in the fridge.

LOL, I actually didnt get to work on them, we were at my in-laws until around 6:30. But This thursday Im going to get back on the MIB. I found a local supplier with wiper motors for $20 each, and one in Knoxville for $15 each..

Thanks again for the complements
