Here’s how I made my Front Entrance Pallet Table:
First, I dismantled a pallet and ripped them down into planks the size I wanted. Next, I glued and clamped them while I built the mounting frame. I made the mounting frame by using two pieces of pallet wood and drilling it so that two mounting bolts will go just over the antique wheel, and one will go under, locking the table in place.
Creating the Front Entrance Pallet Table wheelbase:
I used a 125-year-old wheel from a farming implement as the base of my table, but I had to weld braces so that it could stand. Before I welded, I stabilized the wheel with some temporary mounting blocks while I did the metal fabrication. Next, I cut the metal pieces, then welded the flat bars together to form a “T” shape, welding the bars to the wheel. I ground down the welding joints and then spray-painted it all a gloss black.
I installed the table top onto the finished table base and bolted everything down tightly. Finally, I added a piece of flat bar across the table in two spots and bolted it all together.
