From Pallet to Eligant

I found several old pallets at the National Guard Armory where I work and took them home; I knew they were oak by the weight, and I was not sure if I would be able to take them apart and keep the wood intact. I managed this with a saws-all and then used a nail punch to remove the nails from the deck boards. The stringers were the real challenge to remove the nails that I had cut; I had to drill a hole next to the nails then grab them with a pair of nail snips and pull them out. I then came up with the idea of cutting the long edge of the stringers with a 45-degree angle and join them together with glue and brad nails and clamps. I used these as the legs and the other stringers for the frame for the top boards. I cut a piece of 3/8 plywood for the base of the table top, and this gave me a sturdy flat surface to glue and brad nail the pallet wood too. I used carriage bolts to fasten the legs to the table frame. I made a decorative trim around the edge using my router table and some long 1 inch strips from the decking boards. I had planed all of the wood before I started this project and it all looked like brand new wood, so I make a formula of vinegar, steel wool, and water to re-age the wood after the table was assembled. I then sanded the wood until it was at the desired smoothness and color, and then I put three coats of satin finish polyurethane on the entire table top and bottom.
