Reclaimed Pallet Wood Dining Table


This project was inspired by several requests from friends and family to use up a bunch of old pallets that were found in various places throughout Chicago - left for dead next to dumpsters. What better way to recycle all of that wood than to make a beautiful table with it???

I used my arsenal of Ryobi tools to breakdown those pallets, remove all nails, screws, staples, etc, plane them down, sand them down, construct the table, and finish it off with some sanding, staining, and buffering. My Ryobi cordless system and several corded power tools were crucial for getting the job done right! The quality and durability of these tools is unmatched for the incredibly affordable price point!!! Thanks Ryobi!

  • This table is EPIC! All of the work that DMH does is top notch high end, I am still in disbelief that such a beautiful table could come from pallets on the side of the alley! Just leave it to DMH to make it into a work of art!!!! :)
