I made no attempt to hide the the pedigree of this pallet. Its just a pallet as it was. Chopped up an old fence post for the legs – sanded roughly – stained – varnished. No deconstruction of the pallet involved.
Regretted staining it as it looked better plain. Next one will be just varnished.
Made it for the rumpus room so it could be a platform for all sorts of things. 1.2m x 1.2m.
The real tragedy is that the company next door gets about a dozen deliveries of goods on these pallets every week. New wood – single use and then dumped. Shame as the wood is not too bad – just pine but…..

Solid looking pallets. Could easily be made into all sorts of things this way. I can see a shop table variant—just use longer legs.

Well done. Pine has it’s place. It’s still the most widely used wood in the world.

I didn’t know you were a flamenco dancer to boot ! What a perfect place to practice or demonstrate. Great salvage job ! I would like to see the next one that is planned for a natural finish ! Sure wish I had a ready source of discarded pallets to work with. Good recycling job, and a nice sturdy table with a history !

I like it! You created something new from something old. Shape form and color as I see in your photo works well! Let the wood speak to you. And its there.
