Hello again folks!

Today I will show you how I built a small coffee table out of old pallets.

Materials used:

- pallet

- a handful of wood screws

- wood stain

- clear coat finish

- and a few hours of your time

I hope you guys enjoy this small project and feel free to comment and give suggestions!

Step 1: Lay out your design

First I broke up a few of those pallets that I got from Wal-Mart for free! I love FREE stuff! Even if I don't need it. hehe

Then I took the better looking pieces and laid them out in a way that the old holes would be off. Then took a saw to it and eyeballed the length and width of my soon to be table.

I wanted a small coffee table, because my college house here is pretty small and I needed something to hold my food and a drink while not taking up a lot of space.

good job, best looking piece of pallet furniture I've seen. I built a table from pallets once but left it rough since it was for my garage
great ible simple and functional. I think the word you were looking for was screws instead of crews
<p>yes, screws. Sorry, English is not my first language. </p>
no problem
