Step 1: Wood selection

I had my eye on several stacks of pallet skids at the warehouse next to our shop for quite a while. I asked their shipping manager about using the wood and he gave me the green light.

Several weeks ago 2 large stacks of skids appeared and the wood in them looked great. So during the New Years break I went over with our fork lift, brought one of the stacks over, went through the entire stack and found a bunch of lumber I liked.

It took an entire day to disassemble, select and prep the wood we wanted.
Lovely job I'm sure it will last years, you would pay a fortune for a solid wood table that size in a shop.
How sturdy of a table is it with just glue and dowels holding it together? It looks incredible and am interested in doing something similar to make a dining room table for everyday use
