Reclaimed Dining Table

3,660 Views
We wanted a square rustic dining room table which wound up being harder to find than we had anticipated. In the end we decided to just build our own. We were able to reclaim all the material except a piece of plywood and some poplar 1x3s. This was definitely a labor of love but it turned out wonderful!

This is the finished table. It is 5x5 and can seat 8 comfortably.

The base is made of mild steel which were leftovers from a friend's workshop. After welding is all together we had to grind off all the red anti-corrosive coating.

The table top started with a piece of plywood that we nailed the pallet planks into. My hubby started with the cross pieces then from there filled in each triangle.

This is the table top post planing and sanding. The design was inspired by a picture we found on pinterest. The top consists of white and red oak from pallets and poplar that we bought to finish the edges.

And here is the final before and after. We still need two more chairs and some more art, but for the first time in 3 years our dining room is fully functional.

Materials I used for this project:

  • Pallets   (craigslist)
  • Poplar   (Home Depot)

    Wonderful carpentry skills! Looks terrific. Personally think a bit rustic for the room, but provides tension.

      Thank you! We eat in our dining room for all meals so I was hoping a rustic table would bring down the formality a notch as well as add something unexpected. I might have to add some more rustic elements so that it all blends together better.

      Thanks! I totally stole the pattern from a table off Pinterest, but my husband always amazes me at his skill with wood.

      Thank you! I was orginally just going to go with planks for a farm house table, but once I saw this pattern on Pinterest I was totally smitten!
