I built this end table a while back and am just now posting it. I posted a video of the design process if you care to watch. The table is made of pine pallet material. Instead of trying to remove the nail holes I accented them with walnut plugs. I used biscuits as the method of joinery. The finish is Minwax Ipswich Pine and several coats of poly. Thanks for looking.

Nice job. I like the idea of using “trash” wood to make beautiful and functional things. Especially when we they turn out this nice. Nice job with the plugs – turning liabilities into assets.
