Pallet wood table W/beverage pale

  • September 1, 2016

This is a pallet herringbone table top I built with a custome beverage pale for game, fight, and me time. I built the bottom frame and legs with 2x4 with pocket holes and the top with pallet wood had a very hard time separating that pallet wood once I got good enough boards and ripped the edges with my 10" Ryobi table saw I was able to lay out my design on a 60"L piece of 1/4" ply gathering the pieces to match as I didn't use a thickness planner next time I definitely will use one once I got them close enough I hand planned the joints made some brackets with pallet scraps to hold the pale in place and cut the hole in the middle of the table carefully trying not to break the boards as I cut, i used the board to glue on the cover to match the design of the herringbone. After I stained and used polyurethane sanded inbetween coats with my Ryobi 1/4" sander. My intentions for the code table were to have enough space food snacks nachos to eat as well as have a beverage pale to fill up with ice and add my beverage of choice to it and for gatherings keep an ice cold drink ready at hands reach and not have to constantly get up and get in people's way while watching a game, or fight I think it came out perfect for my needs and using it is always a pleasure and once I pop the cover off everyone is amazed by it one thing I will do different next time is use a 4x4 square leg style and use a thickness planner so all boards are perfectly even. Thanks for viewing and can't wait to build another one!

  • Amazing turn out! This is sure to be the hit of your next game/fight night. It looks like there will be more than enough space here for your snacks, and even plenty of room to kick up your feet. You did a great job with the rustic look- even thought it's stained, the character of the pallet wood shows very nicely. Did you distress the finish at all?

    • Thank you, and yes most of the wood was pretty distressed already and I left the nail holes alone I like the character it gives also while sanding on some parts I sanded back down to bare wood so it wood show through while applying polyurethane I also have a video which I explain things a lot more of the build check it out there's a part 2 also this table will definitely be one I build again!
