like most of my recent projects this is again made of post-consumer wood. The story of this table should really be about the legs. They are pallet stringers unlike any I have ever seen, tremendous and with unmatched character. They were given to me by a friend who figured he would never get around to using them. I tried to leave as much character and age in the maple as possible, so I sanded them lightly, and oiled them generously. I used some mahogany from another pallet to join them, and sanded and oiled them again. The table top is made from maple ply I had leftover from a wardrobe build, and cork tiles leftover from a kitchen reno. I used multiple coats of watered down varathane to finish the top. This was an exceptionally fun build, as cleaning up the maple was great – knowing that it avoided the landfill, and has found a home.
