We have bar stools on the patio & we needed a table for them.
From pallets I cut pieces 5” X 1 1/2” and started in the center line of a 36” X 36” 3/8” plywood sheet.
And worked my way across the middle, first row, then continued until the sheet was almost covered.
I glued four sides of each piece ( not the top and one end). I cut the finish top to 34” X 34”
And finished the edge with 3/4” trim.
2×4 legs & frame.
I sanded it & clear finish it. It will be in a covered patio so several coats of finish.
It was a fun project lots of cutting & sanding.
I think is was worth it
Note: the top pieces were culled for gouges & cutes. When you think you got enough keep cutting.

That is a very good looking table, and interesting too,
Congratulations on a great job.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Great use of pallets! As a poor college student I am always intrigued by pallet builds!.
