How To Make An Upcycled Pallet Table

Alex from DIY Ready shows us how to make an upcycled pallet table in this video.  I really like the rustic style of this table, it does look like it requires a lot of sawing though.

I’m not entirely convinced that all the boards used were from a pallet as there was a sticker with a bar code on one at the beginning!

Please ensure that you wear protective eye-wear when sawing, especially when using electrical sawing equipment.  You don’t want to end up with a splinter in your eye…

Also, do check that the pallets you want to use are safe to reuse and that they are not from a rental company (rental pallets are usually coloured).  Read the following article for more guidance on this – Are Wood Pallets Safe For Reuse? by
