Pallet Wood Coffee Table Details:
After getting a new apartment I decided to make my own coffee table using pallet wood since I really like the "rustic" style. This project is the first thing that I had ever made out of wood and I have to say that I am very happy with how it turned out!
Lets get started!
- Miter Saw
- Drill and Impact Driver
- Minwax Early American Stain
- Kreg Jig
- Pallet Wood
I cut the boards to length and laid out the pieces that would make the top
Create a frame out of 2"x2" wood to attach the top boards to, then cut the 4" x 4" legs to length and screw them into the frame using pocket holes
Make a second frame to go around the base of the legs and screw it down using pocket holes. Add planks going across the frame to create a shelf.
Give the table a good sanding and apply your choice of stain. Here I used a Dark Walnut stain
I decided that the stain was a bit too dark for my taste so I sanded it back down and applied a Minwax Early American stain and darkened the edges and used a Minwax Polyurethane to finish the coffee table.
