Wood Pallet Coffee Table

This was my first wood working project ever. I decided I wanted to make a coffee table out of wood pallets. When I first began this project I only had a circular saw and little other tools. I began with a rough sketch up of the project, broken down all of my boards and stained each with a different color stain. After staining I cut each board to 45 degree and aligned them in the middle and trimmed the overhang. I also put a bar top epoxy on the top to give it a really smooth finish. For the legs I went out and bought 16" steel hairpin legs.

  • This is a beautiful piece of work. The various stain colors look amazing, and the hairpin legs really add a lot of style. The high-sheen top coat is the icing on the cake! Great work!
