I have seen several of these posted on various sites, and even a few on LJ. I stopped at an industrial complex and asked if I could have a couple of their pallets, and the guy said it was actually refreshing to have someone ask for them rather than steal them in the night. He told me to take as many as I liked.
the harvesting of the wood, believe it or not, was the hardest part of the project. I wasted a lot of wood, when if I would have just did a search on LJ I would have found this great tutorial. http://lumberjocks.com/CptWingnut/blog/24067
I think I would have more than doubled my yield if I had followed that tutorial. These tables were a blast to make, and I sold them to a friend, and included a book with of photos of the making of the tables. I will probably make a bunch more of these now that I know how to harvest the wood better.
