Paducah Pallets

by Teresa Pearson

Michael Reed builds pallet furniture for customers as far away as Florida.

Reed and wife of 17 years Laurie live in Paducah and have an 8 year old son named Cooper. Reed grew up in Ballard County and graduated from BMHS in 1995. His parents are Mark and Ann Reed from Kevil.

Reed has worked for a local company as a Fire Alarm Technician/Inspector for 10 years. He said, "I started working with recycled pallets a couple of years ago. I saw a pallet chair online and thought, "I can build that", so I built it. My family kept telling me how neat it was and that I should build other items and sell them. So I opened up a shop online with Etsy and Amazon and have been selling on there for almost 2 years now. I wanted to make furniture that was different than what you would find in a store. I enjoy creating pieces of furniture that people get excited about seeing."

Reed builds other home furnishings as well out of the reclaimed pallets. His biggest order he says was for a new donut shop in Destin, Florida, Destination Little Donuts. The owner contacted Reed last year interested in his furniture. With help from his Dad, They built 7 tables and 28 chairs for the donut shop.
