This is from an oak pallet. Tore it all down. Had to square everything up. Used a 2” forstner bit for the base and 1 1/4” for the top holes. Angled the top inserts so the poles won’t fall out. Rounded over the 2” holes so it is easier on the handles of the poles.

Excellent! I have been making a lot of patio/deck furniture from recycled pallet lumber myself. However, there are some slats that really aren’t going to support a lot of weight. I have been trying to think of something I can do with that wood. This is a perfect solution! Kudos! Thanks for sharing.
