That came out looking really nice. If you're going for the rustic look in your house, this fits in perfectly. Your idea for an ice bucket cutout was a good one too.

Great idea! This is exactly what I should make with my extra pallet wood. I think I'll add some X-shaped shelves on the bottom for wine storage. Don't forget to mount a bottle opener!

That's a great idea also! Was going to cut a hole in one side of the table for an ice bucket to sit in, but sadly ran out of time on the project (was for a class). Honestly the best thing about this is you have endless possibilities. All up to your imagination and ideas. But thanks for the comments! :)
