Once again my daughter has requested a small table for an area. She is now saying the same thing I use to say to my father...."build it, I will find a place for it". I have a long, narrow pallet and she liked that idea as it would go along with her coffee table I made her.
Time: 3 HoursCost: $40Difficulty: Easy
Start with any size pallet you have and cut to what you need. Be careful as this is all rough wood. Wear gloves.
On the underside of the pallet, cut a notch out for your leg. Then pre-drill holes for attaching legs to the pallet.
Before you tighten all the screws, take a level and make sure they are straight. Too many times I forgot this step and the legs are heading the wrong way other that straight up!
I also put a cross piece on the bottom of the legs for support and another little shelf.
Now it's time to do a LOT of sanding. The pallet was the toughest as it was very rough lumber but it got done.
And staining and 6 coats of poly (sanding lighting in between each coat) it is now ready for the house.
