This is excellent! Very impressive. The fact that you made this out of pallet wood is all the more impressive. One of my objectives on most projects is to completely avoid the use of hardware also.

That is a wonderful table. Its amazing what one can do with pallets. Your attention to detail and pride in your work really show through. Sweet score on the walnut too I must say.

Pallet wood as in “get it free from used pallets?” I can’t picture pallets made from walnut.

I like it those old pallets are a good source of free wood but it does take some time to find ones that aren’t made of pine or fir up here

WOW a great looking table. A friend of mine gave me a pallet that he was about to ut in the dumpster and noticed it had some unusual type of wood in it and he saved it for me. I could only get enough wood out of it to make a small top. I have no ideal what kind of wood it is but it made a stunning table top. I have it posted in my projects.
You done a great job on this table, GREAT SAVE on some otherwise waste wood.

I love your recycled wood work! Who says that you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear?
Beautiful! It looks like those legs really took much of the time.

Great work, I also don’t care for hardware, here’s a simple tip: drill holes in your joints so that when the joint is pressed together the glue flows in to the holes acting like a super strong dowl. It gets in to the grains and will make a strong joint…
