Steel-Framed Pallet Coffee Table Procedure:
First, I used a crowbar to take one of the pallets apart. I left the nails on the boards! Then, I installed some of the deck boards onto the second pallet to fill in the gaps. Next, I sanded down the tabletop thoroughly with paper and a random-orbit sander. I cut four legs using the 40-mm-square tube steel. Then I cut four 30-mm square steel pieces for the table rails/frame. I welded the frame and legs together as shown in the pictures below. Then, I used an angle grinder to smooth down the weld joints. I spray-painted the square steel base a matte black color. I cut eight small rectangular foam pieces to keep the tabletop steady on the base. Then, I attached the table top to the base using 50-mm screws. Finally, I used deck oil on the table top. Boom! A rustic-meets-modern steel-framed Pallet Coffee Table!
