Take two pallet boards and cut each end at a 25 degree angle. You want the angles to be opposite of each other.

Next, take another board and measure where you want your legs. This will be your top board. Make the distance the same on both sides. Mark it and pre drill three holes.

After you pre drill your holes, screw the legs to the top board.

For extra support for the table, cut a piece to go in between the legs. I used a Kreg Jig to screw it in from the bottom so you wouldn't see the screws.

Add trim all the way around the top board. Use a 1″ board as a guide when attaching the sides so the trim would sit higher. They can be attached with a nail gun.

Next, measure from the inside of the trim piece on your table to the middle of your table. When measuring, make sure you measure it at a 45 degree angle. Now, cut your board to that measurement. You should have a piece that looks like this:

Cut enough pieces to cover the entire table. Lay your design out to make sure all your pieces fit correctly. Half of the design will go one way and the half will go the opposite way meeting in the middle.

Where the pattern meets, you will need to cut a triangle piece for the top. When cutting the bottom piece, you will need to cut your angle then turn the wood over and cut your other angle.
