Introduction: Scrap Pallet Table
I was inspired to make this from wholman in furniture on instructables.com. The top portion is from two pallets (heat treated of course for safety not the chemical treated) and the legs are from some 30 year old scrap pine 1x10's I ripped down to the width of the pallet slats used on top. I What I did different was I used the first trellis and leg portion as a jig to drill holes in each board individually for the threaded rod and they lined up perfectly! I did not pinch the end of the legs together because they are only 17" high and thought they might break if I did that. I instead doubled them up for proper thickness and strength. I used a belt sander to then flush everything out on the top and two sides opposite of the threaded rods and left the bottom unfinished and irregular on purpose. This table is overbuilt and super strong! I used "Fixall" multipurpose filler in the gaps. I used only boiled linseed oil and then a product with bee's wax and linseed oil for the final finish and it turned out quite nice! Other than that, I followed the same process in making this as wholman did making his "scrap table" as seen here in the link below:
