Hi @recliner1066,

 

There's a lot of discussion about how to obtain timber pallets in this popular discussion - Pallet D.I.Y. projects

Re: Table made from pallet timber

Mitchell,

Definitely would consider making one, I am very interested in the table top construction. I have put a few pieces of Pallet furniture, nothing as spectacular as that. I have access to a lot of pallets and it seems the natural thing to do.

Re: Table made from pallet timber

Hi @HVH, there's nothing elaborate about it, I have no carpentry skills whatsoever and pretty much made up the design as I went along. I used a compound mitre saw to cut the timber and a Joiner-Jig for corner joints and joining two straight pieces of timber together (the table length beam is two pieces joined end to end).  I find that the Joiner-Jig does give very strong joints.  I made the table frame with cross beams to attach the tabletop slats to.  I attached the tabletop slats to the frame from underneath so you can't see any screws.  Once the table frame was completed, I attached the cross braces between the legs and the frame.  The cross braces were just scrap-timber with 45-degree angle cuts at each end.  just make sure the legs are square to the frame when attaching the cross braces, if you've got the 45-degree angles right the squaring up should be easy.  Hope this helps.  Demo

Re: Table made from pallet timber

@Demo,

Thanks for your response. Sorry I took so long. Is it possible to have a photograph from underneath to see how the joins on the table slats works. That still confuses me, I am pretty simple-minded with Carpentry and joinery tks
