Reclaimed wooden pallets are totally unbeatable when it’s about building DIY furniture, and this coffee table is all about the rustic gorgeousness of old pallets.
Showcased by PaintyCloud, the pallet table can never fail to make its mark, redifining the look and feel of the whole room in the blink of an eye.
Once you gather about two-three wood pallets in fair condition, a saw, a hammer, a few nails, a flathead screwdriver, pliers, a sandpaper, a wood stain or glaze, a drill, carriage bolts with washers and some nuts, you are all set to advance towards the construction of the table.
The tutorial begin with cutting one of the pallets into half to work up the top of the table. Further, you remove the slats from the second pallet, alongwith any old nails.
The most glorious thing about the table is its top that looks quite similar to a slatted pallet even when finished, except for the fact that the slats are much closer than the raw one. To achieve that, you hammer slats from the second pallet in between the slats of the tabletop created earlier.
Even the legs of this endearing piece of furniture are worked up from a pallet board, wherein you keep a crosswise half with two of the three support boards, cutting only the front slat in order to end up in a wooden rectangle with a hollow middle until you get five rectangles.
Further you cut four slats from scrap pallets to match the width of the table, attaching two of them to the underside of the top to provide more support to the structure. One of the slats is attached along the top edge and the other along the bottom edge.

The supports that are just made are used to attach three of the rectangular table legs to the table, crosswise to the top. And your table top is all ready to be sanded down for a smoother and finished look. Adorn it with a nice stain or glaze, alongwith the four pieces standing out.
The two remaining rectangular pieces are laid down on the left and ride side of the table after turning it upside down, aligning with the pieces that were attached before.
Now comes the drilling, wherein you make three holes through both rectangular pieces, alongwith two holes in the ends of the remaining width-long slats. Make sure they are in perfect alignment with the holes in the rectangular pieces.
Employ some carriage bolts, washers and nuts to attach rectangular pieces and slats together, extending the legs on the left and right of the table, while the crosswise support on the top and bottom is offered by the slats.
Stain the table with your choice of stain, preferably, a dark matte finish to get an extraordinarily rustic look. To make it a lot more portable, it’s a great idea to attach casters to the structure, and you have already got a spectacular coffee table for your space!
