In my case I had to angle the ends of the planks so that they would conform to my curved template for the curved mast.
I also staggered the end to end glue joints of the different layers (12) in order to avoid hard spots along the length of the mast so it would be stronger and flex more uniformly. So I've come to realize that with enough patience and epoxy and a thickness planer that one can create laminated planks from pallet wood. I'm not sure the esteemed builder used pallet wood, but he did use an awful lot of short pieces of reclaimed lumber to build that quite successful boat. Building a dory out of recycled wood could be cost effective if it brought you $200,000 worth of free advertising for your boat building business. Thorne, I used $600 worth of Sitka spruce to build my birdwing mast but looking back, with all the glue lines in that thing, it could have easily been white pine or poplar or yes, even pallet wood spruce. The sapelle plywood for Xena's build came on a mahogany and white oak pallet that I took apart and used for all kinds of things.

I'm married to a lady who smuggles empty beer bottles home from restaurants to make sure they get recycled. You might get away with cross planking the bottom, and running the side planks almost vertical, but you'd need strong longitudinals. I design automated pallet assembly equipment for a living, and life's WAY too short to sort through bunk after bunk of pallet wood to find a couple of good boards, then dry them - they're generally so wet they almost splash when you nail them.
