Re: Pallet Table - Built from pallet/crate wood

@Jason I built it at the same time I built my tools cabinets for my mums birthday. It is sitting in pride of place at my parents house. It was built to be an outdoors table for the patio but Mum refused to have it outside and so it is now inside. The old dining room table now sits on the patio. :smile: I aim to use similar techniques when I eventually come to build my ultimate computer gaming and flight simulator desk.
