My mother has had an MDF table since the 60s. It finally rotted and she wanted to throw it away. I kept the legs knowing I could make a nice table with them. I decided to give it cool angles with lots of grain patterns. My plan was to sell it but we like it WAY too much to do that. Besides, the legs should stay in the family for another 50 years.

The legs are hollow aluminum tubes. I sanded and sprayed those. The table, well that is the work. I had some extra pallet wood that I cut into 2-inch strips. I planed and cut them to like dimensions. Some strips are 3/4", some are 1/2". A friend that has a mill gave me some cedar and once I milled that I decided it was going to be the heart and soul of my new table. Some scrap Ipe, Sapele, and Pecan were mixed in the pallet wood. The pallet woods are pine, oak, white oak, cypress, and poplar wood.

My planer got a work out on this one. It ran for days and my neighbors had to hate it. But, the end results are worth a few less Christmas cards.
