I have recently taken to reusing pallets to make tables and other what nots. This is my attempt at an instructable showing how I made a side table out of one of these pallets. Figured why not reuse this lumber and maybe keep another tree from getting cut down. All criticism and comments are welcomed and encouraged. Hopefully someone out there will enjoy this or give it a shot.

Step 1: Gather your Materials

First thing first gather up your materials. You'll need some

Pallets (obviously) 
Drill
Hammer
Sandpaper
Screws 
Nails (used from the disassembled pallet)
Wood Glue
Hinges
Wood Stain(optional)

Love the choice of stain color and the storage space

Thanks a lot, and thanks for checking out my instructable. I always enjoy hearing that other people enjoy the few things that I have posted here.

Nice job, simple with a rustic charm you would pay a fortune for in a shop.
I love to see timber being reused, far better than it being used once then ending up in a landfill.
Quite a lot of my own 'ibles are about using salvaged timber, I have a couple more to add when I get time, you may like this one.
I look forward to what you have coming in future.

Thanks a bunch. This is actually my third table I have made from pallets and I believe my best so far. I really enjoy being able to reuse this wood rather than it ending up in a landfill like you mentioned or just being burned up. I am no woodworking master or even good at it really ha ha, but I sure do enjoy it. Thanks again for checking this out.
