Pallet Herringbone table and bench

My hubs collected a bunch of pallets for me at his work. We got them home, and I went to work! After a day dismantling, I went to work. I set mind to build a whole dining room set just from pallets. These days I am I love with everything herringbone, so I decided to make the top in that pattern. I cut my pallets to size, and started the puzzle piece too. Then I fashioned some industrial looking legs from 2x4's salvaged from the pallets . After I trimmed the top out, I added the base, and started sanding away. Once nice and smooth, I added a natural stain and a bunch of poly.

  • Amazing transformation! And thanks so much for including the link to the blog post. It was a real treat reading about the pallets evolution from a would-be tree fort to a beautifully crafted piece of furniture. The choice to let the natural character of the pallets to show through was really the way to go, too! This really looks amazing- no doubt it will sell very quickly if it hasn't already. Did you do the black and white bench seen in the trade show photo too?

    • Thanks so much for the great feedback, and for reading my blog post about this project. :) it was such a fun transformation, especially when I think about how I initially didn't want anything to do with the large piles of pallets!! And yep, I also made the black and white chevron bench in the photo. I just stated making 4 more yesterday!!! They are a hot item. Functional and beautiful!!!
