We needed an outdoor dining table but of course, it’s me, and nothing off-the-shelf will make the cut. I came up with this Crazy Quilt Style Pallet Dining Table. However, the trick was getting it together – and staying together.
Crazy Quilt Style Pallet Dining Table – How I did it:
After plenty of internet research, hemming and hawing, I discovered DAP’s Weldwood Plastic Resin glue. Every odd piece is butt-jointed and held together with this glue.
I left an open area in the middle for a plastic planter to use as a condiment, beverage, impromptu ice chest, or miscellaneous supplies holder. Additionally, I added a few longer pieces of pallet wood underneath for stability and used legs from Pretty Pegs. Finally, I added several shims to fill in some of the gaps from the warped or crooked pieces I used.
There are many variations. You could embed decorative pieces, such as beach glass (that’s smooth), rocks, shells, etc.
