Another before and after.
The reflection hides it some what, but the grain pattern on top of the table came out really cool.
Just fooling around with free wood.
Thanks for looking.

Cool table, great reapplication of wasted material. Nice finish too what did you use?

I saw a pallet in use at work the other day with 1 board that had “bees wing” grain pattern on it. Went looking for it later and could not find it.

Nicely done. This is precisely why I first thought to get a planer—to reclaim pallet wood.

A beautiful creation made from pallet lumber.

A lot of nice wood ends up in the landfills, which is a shame.

I cringe when I see dumpsters full of good lumber in front of building, & remodeling jobs.

I used to look at a pallet and see trash, and that’s where it went. Now that I’m a member here I’ve seen several “pallet projects” and am starting to see things in a different perspective. I may just have to break one apart myself and see what I come up with. Nice job

Years ago I read an article about recycling pallet wood. The main points I took away from it was that you can get good pallets and crates from your local motorcycle shop. Most times they are glad to get rid of them. Since a lot of motorcycles are imported the materials can get pretty exotic. Of course the main drawback is the nail holes.
