I needed an outdoor coffee table for my deck that isn't too big. This table only used a portion of a pallet. I used wood glue and stainless screws, and a piece of wood on the ends to stabilize the legs. I used wooden dowels in the top slats, with glue, to hold them in place. I added some old casters I already had, and sealed it with several coats of Polyacrylic, so it would be durable outside in the elements. It's very handy!
