This was a table made from scraps and now is at my sisters house being used as a place to play games with my nephew. It was never meant to be an amazing table but I had some fun making it.
The top is 56 strips from an old oak pallet that I found. Many of them have termite holes and divots taken out of them. I mixed a batch of walnut sawdust and glue to fill holes/gaps, and then used a light wood filler to go over it again making a good mix of colors on top. It has general fish satin clear on top.
The legs/aprons are slot mortise and tenons from poplar strips, the legs are three strips glued up to get the thickness. Finished with general finish gel stain and satin clear.

I cheated on the bottom shelf as the slats are held on with pocket screws from underneath, the holes are filled and sanded but I still know they are there.

It came out great looking, hard to believe it’s from pallets. Like the colors and finish. I’m sure it will last long to be enjoyed. Great job!
