grilling side table

  • September 4, 2016
  • Other


We needed a table to have right next to the grill to place condiments on while grilling with family and friends, so I decided to make this one from pallet wood and made it somewhat high which is perfect for my height. I had to work with very limited tools since I just started woodworking in July from this year. This would be my 2nd project. The reactions have left people surprised considering I am a newbie. I learned that a large amount of hard work is on dismantling the pallets lol, and everything else goes smooth with a very well thought out plan.

  • Awesome design! It really is surprising that you've only been woodworking for a relatively short amount of time. Were there any unexpected challenges with this piece (aside from the laborious process of reclaiming the wood, that is)?

    • Thanks! Yes, nailing the boards to connect in the middle 2x4 was hard since it was a tight space and I wanted both to have a strong hold. I wanted to use a sheet of plywood but all the scraps I have lying around weren't to my desired size. So I use extra 2x4's that I dismantled from another pallet.
