I made a breakfast table bench for a mate who has a small balcony by installing the table top into the fixed fence and adding two legs at the other end.
Once I made the frame using timber, I then ran another strip of timber about 60mm wide along each side of the frame and on the other side hanging about 30mm into the middle. Each plank of pallet sat on that little groove nicely. I then screwed from underneath through the strip into the top angled pallets.
This was a fun project as there were a few things I hadn't done before. One being the style of legs. Instead of doing plain square ones, I wanted to make them go from thick to thin. I also made a 30 degree chamfer on the edges with a circular saw.
Another part of the project that is different is the stain. I originally stained the whole table dark brown but I'm glad my mate wanted to change it to a more rustic light look. I got the belt sander out and went to town.
Once the entire table top looked like the border, I applied a clear coat of Cabot's Cabothane Clear Varnish.
The vinegar and steel wool stain method reacted nicely with the varnish to create this look.
