One thing that trended from the very beginning were pallets. Pallets can be used to make just about anything like seats,benches, bed frames, chests, signs etc.

But today I’m going to teach you how to create pallet tables.

STEP ONE:

Get some pallets and sand/ clean them.

STEP TWO:

Pry the wood pieces apart and away form the blocks. If some pieces break off, it’s okay, it adds character.

STEP THREE:

Individually brush & sand the slats, start combining the pieces together again. The treating of the wood actually took a considerable amount of time, but keep in mind that the level of fineness actually depends on your design and how fine you want the table to be.
With the help of a large clamp, hold the pieces together and glue the three transom pieces in place. Afterwards, glue the remaining six blocks and the two skids in the bottom.


STEP FOUR:

After alot of  coats of lacquer is finished, position castor wheels and marked the holes for drilling.You can use hex wood screws to install the wheels.

STEP FIVE:

Put this baby in your living-room and Enjoy!
