Found an oak pallet and decided on a coffee table. The oak had some pretty big gouges that I tried to smooth out as much as I could but I kept having to go deeper and deeper so I left those spots lower, there are only two and you really cant tell from the pictures. I used my angle grinder around the edges to give it less of a square feel. Danish oil and wipe on poly to finish. The bottom is just some pine with an ebony stain to give some contrast and let the oak stand out.

I like it. I think it would look great in my cabin. The edge is informal, but smooth… and looks pleasing. May I ask how you joined the boards you glued up?

Very nice. I am a big fan of reclaimed wood usage and yours is a fine example.

Wow! Can’t believe it’s made from pallets. It’s beautiful, love the top and the stained legs. Great job!
