Sure, you could build a straightforward table, OR, you could build your own Herringbone Pallet Corner Table. This project wasn't from a tutorial; I came up with it myself!
How I built myself a Herringbone Pallet Corner Table:
I received a replacement iMac and needed something small to mount it on. This project was purely an idea from the mind. I didn't have any tutorials or drawings. I built the top in a herringbone pattern, which was fairly easy to make. However, I had to add an additional layer on the underside to support the smaller pieces. Otherwise, I fitted it to my room dimensions, but you could resize it as you need. This could be sized up to be a large table, or even smaller for a child if you chose.
I sanded the table smooth and stained it a rich, golden pecan color, and sealed it. It's a good fit for my home and works well as my workstation. I built this in about three hours, and it took about 1 1/2 pallets to complete. You could use less pallet deck boards if you used something like plywood or MDF underneath as the support surface for the herringbone pattern. You could also modify the back corner, by either trimming it slightly to allow for cords or adding in a pre-made cord pass-through (a cord grommet such as this).
You can modify this basic design for many situations, and I hope you like it! :D
