Use those pallet scraps in a beautiful Stripped Kitchen Table! This project is an incredibly fun idea that is great to get help with from the kids! Create an heirloom piece while you create memories. Add some drama and stain or paint individual strips before gluing them in place.
Striptease: Build a Stripped Kitchen Table for your kitchen or dining room.
First plane deck boards to a uniform thickness of 1/2″. Next, cut multiple 1/2”x 1/2” strips. Optional: stain or paint individual pieces of pallet deck boards before gluing. Mix and match wood types, or keep it a uniform color. Cut a piece of 3/4″ plywood to the size of the table you want. Glue the cut pieces down with good-quality wood glue to a piece of 3/4” plyboard, or put the kids to work on this step Trim the table with 1 1/4″ wide strips, or use a commercially-made trim board. Miter the corners for a finished look. Cut tapered or straight legs, and attach to them with a leg mounting plate set. If you prefer, store-bought table legs are a stylish option.
