Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Beginning
First, I took apart many many pallets.
Each bar 7 cm wide cut. Then I cut at right angles to the edges and cut them to size. Finally, I planed them.
Step 2: Preparing the Crates
The crates handle jigsaws cut off and the edges are rounded router
I made the tenons with a table saw.
After all, I thoroughly sanded all the parts. All components are glued and philips screws are fixed. I made four equal boxes.
After assembly, beeswax and linseed oil was treated with a mixture of surfaces.
Step 3: Tabletop
The table top was made by using pocket hole screws and glue.
The boards are fitted with a router.
After joining the lower side made a stiffening frame, also with glue and screws are fixed.
Then 80-grit sanding the surface was smooth. Router rounded edges. 220-grit sanding smoother even before finish. The tabletop surface of the linseed oil and beeswax mixture of treated.
Step 4: Assembling
It was important to me that the assembly and disassembly should be simple. This helps a lot in a possible move.
The crates should be fixed by screws 4-4 and the resulting finished table legs, also 4-4 screws should be secured to the table top from the bottom.
Before screwing the crates are infinitely rotatable, depending on how the right or left towish the shelves.
Step 5: Moving
The table was made so we loaded easily into a passenger car, with all the necessary stuff, and even the third floor was not burdensome to bring up :)
