So there is this supply company near my house. Not sure what they do but they must receive in all kinds of shipments because it is a pallet gold mine. They are always putting their pallets near the curb for anyone to take. Well they are always putting these 2×6’s near the curb as well. They must receive some sort of crate or special container that is made with 2×6’s because so far I have been lucky to get around 50 of them. They are all about 4 ft long and in perfect shape. I added a pic of one of my hauls.

Anyway I made a farmhouse style coffee table out of a few of them. Put together using pocket hole screws. Stained it a Golden Mahogany and applied 3 coats of Poly. This table cost me probably less than 5 bucks and my time. Can’t beat that!! If it’s FREE, it’s for ME, as the old saying goes.

Hope you enjoy it!
