Inspired by a different culture? Use it to make something like this Elegant Japanese-Inspired Pallet Coffee Table!
First, I broke down a pallet. Next, I built a sub-frame and trimmed down some 2x2" boards, angling the legs. I sanded the frame and applied a water-based transparent paint to create the two-tone effect. I planed several deck boards and carefully joined the edges, gluing to secure. When dry, I affixed the table top to the frame from beneath. I sanded everything well, then applied a wax to seal the piece.
