I had never built much of anything from wood before until I made this Two-Pallet Rustic Pallet Coffee Table. Then I saw some ideas on 1001pallets.com and some other websites and thought I’d try. I have just about unlimited access to pallets at work, so I thought I’d make some extra cash! One of my first projects was this coffee table which I made with two pallets.
Two-Pallet rustic pallet coffee table: easy-to-make, and attractive home decor for your living room, outdoor areas, man cave, patio and more!
I removed all of the deck boards from the top of both pallets so I could re-attach adjoining slats to the top pallet. Next, I turned the bottom pallet upside down and fastened four slats to the bottom of it on each end to make a small shelf on both ends for storing remote controls or magazines, etc. I used 2 1/2″ wood screws to attach the pallets to each other. The legs are from another pallet that I tore down. At first, I was using a pry bar but found a video on YouTube. Now I use a reciprocating saw to dismantle pallets. I sanded the table with my Dewalt hand sander and then stained it. I have already sold a table! :)
