Here is a fun quick step by step tutorial on How to make a Coffee Table from a Pallet.
Materials Needed To Build: Piece of Plywood + Wood Stain (or actual Coffee) + a Pallet in good shape.
Tools Needed: Crow Bar, Hammer, Saw and Belt Sander.
(NOTE: The legs and outer part of the table above is made from the leftover wood from the pallet.)
Stain sides and legs with a dark walnut stain and use lag screws to hold them together.
(16 lag screws all together)
To add more to the table you could…. Get some lag bolts and washers and put them in a bag of acid to create the rusting look. Then seal with a sealer and replace the shiny silver bolts. You could also drill a countersink recess so the bolts and washers are flush.
