I made this end table out of pallet wood for the top. The legs are Douglas fir 4×4s. This was my first project, so it’s certainly not perfect. Life would have been so much easier if I had had a jointer. I didn’t go by any specific plans or drawings, i just looked at a few pictures and came up with the design as i went. My full time job is and electrician, currently a second year apprentice. So i thought i would try to incorporate a receptacle into the table. I just used a 8’ replacement cord to go into my box, i wanted something with a more finished and professional look, rather than buying cord and putting an ugly cap in it. I cut a channel in one of the legs and ran the wire down it, then at the bottom i drilled a hole through and brought the wire out. I finished it with paste wax, but it’s a little rough. I only had 120 grit paper at the time and just wanted to get it done. I’m going to be making a replica at some point, hopefully it will be a little more polished and refined.
