This is my Pottery Barn inspired sideboard for my BBQ area. It cost me all of $8 for the hardware and $4 for the used galvanized shelf. It is made of mahogany shipping create from China that I got from the granite shop that my son in-law’s works at. Eventually I will give it a coat or two of oil just to keep it natural looking.

Great table and recycle. Are you planning on a finish?

i love projects like this made from recycled wood! Sooo cool to take something that would end up in the dumps and give it an amazing new life! Thanks for sharing it with us! Is that a concrete top? I’ve always wanted to try that!

You did a great job on this. Nice save of the pallet wood. The sheet-metal top looks good too. I used to be a tin-bender and that top will go a long way for you. Good work!

That is really nice. I also like the frugal approach and make things from recycled items.
