My fiancé had another Pinterest project for me, pretty simple enough and free pallets from work. Didn’t put any finish or anything on it, she wanted natural, wasn’t sure if I should put some clear coat on it? A couple of her friends want one now.

Nice job! I made one of these as a Christmas gift for my wonderful in-laws, essentially the same design. I sanded it down leaving much of the character. I soaked it thoroughly with a couple of coats of teak oil then sprayed 3 coats of semi-gloss polyurethane. Looks nice and is well protected. You just don’t know where those pallets have been and what has soaked into the wood.

Don’t know where you’re located, but round here those would sell like crazy. Cheap and easy to make too.

The hardest part about the project is getting the boards off the pallets without breaking them to make the bottom and glass holder, some were a pain.

Problem with pallets, unless the boards are thick, nothing except maybe to cut under the boards and cut the nails off would be the best way without breaking the boards. Thanks for the compliments and video
