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.
