Had a few old pallets laying around and came across this You Tube video.

Followed the steps from the video pretty close other than I do not have a hand planer. I just tried to sand the boards down once I have them in place. Some are still a bit bigger than most but that just adds to the rustic feel. My wife used an apple cider vinegar/steel wool finish on the Pine casing and 4×4 legs. The pallets are just natural with no finish.

Thanks for looking.

Very nice table. Love it.A coffee table is the true centerpiece to any living room.It makes the living room complete, as it adds to the appealing look of the room aside from being functional.Your coffee table should outclass all the other furniture in your living room.
