- Outdoor Table
- Made from pallets and leftover timber
- 8 foot x 4 foot
- A fun project
- Size will depend on the space you have in your garden
- We went for 8 foot x 4 foot as our garden is very big!!!
- We wanted it big for entertaining!!!
- Add wood to strengthen your frame
- This is also somewhere for your herringbone design to sit and be nailed to!
Laying the Herringbone
- My hubby had taken apart pallets and this is what I used for the top of the table
- I looked up a template online of what I needed to do to make the herringbone shape
- Its easy once you get the hang of it!
- I lay them down before I secured them to make sure I was happy with how it looked
- Once I was happy - I nailed them in place - making sure to nail into the wood we placed to strengthen the table!!
- I used a jigsaw to cut each piece - been careful not to cut into the actual frame
- I originally used a circular saw but I preferred the finish of the jigsaw!
Varnished and Sides
- I felt it was unfinished at the edges
- I added more of the pallets and varnished it!
- This was after 3 coats of decking oil
- I used pallets upright for the legs
- I measured my dining room table for correct measurements or height
- Cut the top off the pallet - matching the height of a table!!!
- Added blocks of wood to where we had cut - to be able to screw the table top securely to the legs!
- I sprayed the legs in Tudor oak black from ronseal before I attached them!!
- I needed four people to lift the table top as it was very heavy!!
- Screwing the legs onto the table top and it was complete!!!
- Here is a side view of it!!!
