Build this for a friend for her dinner party. The tiger claw legs are bought from a local sofa legs manufacturer and are fastened using threaded inserts and hanger bolts.Everything was sanded down and finished with 3 coats of dark polyurethane. A very simple project, but lots of sanding!

edit: as you can see from the third and fourth pictures, my friend wrote a blog for the tables over at her blog, Fussing over Musings

thank you for dropping by!

Very nice. I like the way you redid the top of the pallet by milling and arranging the boards, yet kept the basic structure of a pallet in the design. Thanks for showing.

Pallet table interesting and looks nice in your place. Some hard woods are amazingly ugly when you find the pallet but when you take one apart and plane it on the planer it is amazingly beautiful. as I have some boards that I planed on my planer after I took a pallet a part.

When I saw the title “Pallet Tables,” I wasn’t really expecting a pallet table – very nice though, I really like it!
