Recycled Pallet Tables with Drawers.

Well the fashion of pallet wood furniture is getting more and more supporters, so I was commissioned to build a few. Some have a rustic look, others less – some with drawers, some with pockets, some with both – some with legs, other with casters. It’s all up to the customer’s needs, dimensions and preferences.
The color/finish and final look is always a subject of discussion with the customer, sometimes I even do a sample color/finish for them.
They were all build using EURO pallets 120 X 80 cm.

Here are a few examples of the ones I have build.

Thank you
Stelios (AKA Steliart)

That additional leggs set looks fantastic, as well as drawers. In our country is also popular at outdoor furniture.

Thanks Ivan !!!
The legs were something I came up with as I did not like anything I see on the net.
Pallet furniture here are becoming popular also as indoor furniture, especially for young people.

They are all nice Stelliart, but I really like the ones where you filled in the gaps in the top with the darker wood. Those have a great look to them.

2 to 3 Pallets
I forgot to mention that according to the design you need 2 or 3 pallets to make one of the long ones

I really like the one with 2 drawers. You have taken it from PALLET wood to a furniture level. VERY NICE. The others are okay to…...my preference is the first one.
This is a very good example of what I try to say in my community…...It is WOOD. regardless of what is was used for after it come from the TREE !
Once again….VERY NICE WORK !

Ohhhh Thank you tyvekboy
I will save that photo for sure :D !!!!!!!!
Actually I dont have one because I think those do not fit very well on EURO pallets which are the only ones I can get my hands on here or brake them… but I am not sure… if I am wrong I stand corrected.
Because I like to get the wood unspoiled I cut between the nails with my big jigsaw fit with a long metal cutting blade…

The first one looks good but overall not my style but the younger generation is all crazy about this style .
You did a fine job with the design by adding legs and drawers .
My only concern is that they are used pallets and I often wonder what has been transported on them and are they contaminated .

Thank you kiefer !!!
As you said is the style of the younger.
About contamination issues … I always treat the pallets first by washing them good, after they dry I tread them with wood protective anti-fungous, anti-woodworm etc. liquid and then ofcourse is the finish over it. So I don’t know if after this contamination will still be an issue.
If I am wrong then please enlighten me, I’m always open to listen and learn !!!

Nice display of your work Stelios! Y
ou better not tell or show those pallet makers what you are doing with their wood or they may start charging you for it. I see that Klaus had some concerns about contamination and I to was wondering about that issue. But I would think you have done a good job putting that issue to rest hopefully.
Nice design’s by the way!

Thank you Tony !!!

Many times we can get them for free but not always there’s a price up to 4 Euro per pallet if you need to buy them.
