About: If you can't buy it, BUILT IT

Hello all,

Well as the title says I had to build a better looking table for my letting house living room. The house it's just 20m by the sea and the idea was to build a table which when you see it to give you a sense/remembrance of the sea.


Step 1: Materials Used

The materials used are as follows:

  • Wooden Pallets (found around)
  • Makita multi-tool
  • Sand Paper
  • Primer
  • Paint
  • Screws/Nails
  • Plastic Feet
  • Silicon Base
  • Glass (Ordered)
  • Sea rocks
  • Star fish (SCUBA diving)
  • anchor, scuba helmet, wooden barrel and an amphore (>$10 on EBAY) (Not on the picture, will follow one with them)

Step 2: Sanding the Pallets

This was the second wooden pallet table I did. When I finished the first one I said that it would have been better to disassemble the pallets so it will be easier while
  • sanding,
  • painting &
  • cutting the pallets to make them the same size.

Step 3: Disassemble the Two Bottom Pallets

I disassemble the two bottom pallets and I cut them to be 100cm X 60cm.
Then I sand them and apply woodworm. After that, primer and sanding again. Then I paint them white.

After a day when the paint dried, I've start assembling them.

Step 4: Design the Pallet With the Drawer

So, the idea for this table was to make a "drawer" on the top and fill it with sea rocks, star fish anchor and other things so it refers to sea.
We have decided that the drawer will be at one side of the pallet and not in the middle.
I disassemble the pallet, cut it in the right dimensions and start designing the drawer.

Step 5: Decorated

Just to make things clear guys. I'm doing any decoration!! :D
My fiance did it :)
