Why pay for laminates and cheap imitations when you can build a mind-blowing Herringbone Pallet Dining Table! I finished this project with epoxy that was done in several layers to fill the low spots. The remainder of the project was finished off using Tung oil.

Knock their socks off with an outstanding Herringbone Pallet Dining Table!

I had some oak and pallet planks that I milled to a standard width and thickness. I cut the planks into 10" pieces, used a 1/4" plank for the base and purchased some sapele wood for the border. That is milled to be 1/8" thicker than the planks. After I arranged the pieces, I glued them down. I sanded with 220 grit to show the grain.

When using alternate products, you have to be patient, as with the epoxy applications on this Dining Table.

Next, the painful and time-consuming part. The epoxy. I had to add multiple layers and work them into low spots. After about four applications and about 1/2 gallon of epoxy, it filled in and leveled out. I sanded the epoxy smooth, started with 80, then 150, 220, 400, 1300 (wet-sand) then buffed. I combined support beams from pallets for the table base. Finally, I finished the remaining wood in the project using Tung oil.
