This was my first time using pallets to make anything. My love and I worked on this project for her daughters Christmas gift. I turned stout legs to stand up to the kids lol. we used a tourch to bring out the grain and give it great character. We loved how it turned out.

From pallet to table it looks so nice. Well done! The first photo kinda looks suspect, were you shopping for pallets at 2 a.m. LOL. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent work. Being able to share our love for woodworking think it’s great. What is a “tourch”? As used to show the grain? I love wood pallet recycling.

Pallets are a great source of overlooked material—nice result!

That turned out very well. I’m curious as to what finish you use over the ‘torched’ wood?
