Got the idea from instructable member keremulu (http://www.instructables.com/id/Pallet-Coffee-Table-From-Reclaimed-Wood/) but I didn't really like his use of castor wheels because to me they took away from the "old and new" look I wanted. So instead I went with a simple steel "C" shape as legs; and I must say it looks really good. 

All you'll need to make your own is a wood pallet (skid), and two 48inch long, 1 1/2 wide, (1/8th inch thick) steel flat rod from Home Depot, some screws and glue; and of course the know how to put it all together. 

This project took about a total of 2 days to compete and I still have to paint the legs, and varnish the table (with the weather getting colder those things are probably not going to happen till next spring/summer). All in all this table proved to be well worth the time and effort I put in and it really adds to my gaming room. 

If you want to build your own, I'd refer you to keremulu's excellent instructable (see link above) as thats what I did, and mine turned out pretty good.
i like the idea of the steel legs with the wood. looks great
<p>This would look also super cool if you used the torch to slightly burn the grain of the wood. I plan on making a very similar set of pallet style tables and shelves for my garage. I will try to incorporate your bent metal leg technique into the project. Thanks for the inspiration. :)</p>
You are extremely kind to refer to my project as an inspiration to yours, congratulations with this terrific piece of furniture! <br> <br>I'm also very fond of wood used together with wrought iron. In fact, I had seen some tables at a local Starbucks shop which had crude yet simple frames of L section steel and table tops of reclaimed wood. Yours remind me a little bit of those. <br> <br>I'm also impressed that you have an oxyacetylene torch in your garage, I worked a lot with iron myself, but since I didn't have a furnace or torch, the hammering was quite difficult. <br> <br>The table looks very solid and robust all in all, congratulations...
Thanks! I must admit though, all those tools are not mine. When ever I build, I ask a friend of mine if I can borrow his wood shop. The only thing he asks for in return is plans to build his own, so I gave him your ible link. <br> <br>Thanks again for your kind words. <br>-TXT
