Bamboo and Pallet Bedside Table




About: Thermal and renewable energy engineer, Music and bike lover..

Hi guys !
I recently salvaged Bamboo wood and decided to make a bedside table with it.

I'd like to make a box in pine wood, edges in pallet wood and table top in bamboo.

Step 1: Supplies

Wood :
I bought pine wood on my local hardware shop

I already have pallet (Europal) and bamboo

Hardware :

I bought 6 hinges and 2 hooks and screw on my local hardware shop


Table saw, drill and screw driver, plane, sand paper.

Step 2: The Box

I use wood batten and screws to fix faces of the table together.

Step 3: Pallet Edges

I slavage outside pallet parts and screw them on the top edges of the box then I plane the corner.

Step 4: Bamboo Table Top

I screw the bamboo parts on thin medium wood then I screw the hinges and hooks to the box.

And it's over !

    Handsome looking work. Can it support a lot of weight? I don't trust that center seam... on the other hand it looks like it's supported by the pallet edges where it is supported.
    What's the verdict? Is it pretty solid and stout? Or would it buckle under the weight of two Americans? (I hope that humor translates.)

    I'm having a little difficulty determining scale from your photos; what are the dimensions of your materials and final product?

    Thank you,
    I think it can easily support 200kg so it should be ok for 2 americans lol
    It's a small size table so i think there is only one seat on it.
