Slick Pallet Coffee Table With Hidden Chest

This is my Pallet Coffee Table With Hidden Chest. The tabletop has two layers to give extra detail and finish. I framed the top layer and bottom layer to be the same size. However, I installed hand-cut, diagonally-cut pallet deck boards on the top. I used an upcycled wooden panel from a door in the bottom layer. This gave the project support and kept the top level.

My Pallet Coffee Table With Hidden Chest:

First, I framed out the bottom of the chest with four 2x2" pieces. I cut deck boards and butt-joined them at the corners, and secured everything with screws. Next, I installed the bottom to create the chest entirely. I created two sets of frames for the table top and mitered the corners for a more polished look. The tabletop has two layers to give extra detail and finish. The top layer is framed out to be the same size as the bottom layer, but it is filled with diagonally-cut pallet boards. The bottom layer is filled with an upcycled wooden panel from a door to give the top support and to keep it level.

My Pallet Coffee Table With Hidden Chest - Finishing:

I attached the top to the chest using a piano hinge or ribbon hinge, which makes it almost invisible unless you see it from the underside. Then, I secured the top using a small scrap piece of chain to prevent the top from falling open too far and damaging the hinge or breaking the wood.

On request, I added small wheels on the bottom so they can move it around. Finally, I sanded the piece and stained it with a rich brown color per my client's request. I think it came out great!

Editor's note: With children or pets, you may want to use a hinge or support for the table top so that it doesn't close too fast on small fingers or paws. Safety first, and Happy Palleting!
