How to Make a Coffee Table Made of Pallets

Making furniture out of recycled materials can be a fun and creative way to repurpose objects that were destined to end up in a landfill into useful and beautiful furniture. Coffee tables can be a perfect place to use these materials to make a unique and sustainable piece of furniture.

Here’s how to make a coffee table out of repurposed/ recycled pallets:

Tools and Materials Needed

  • Three pallets
  • Wood screws
  • Wood Glue
  • Sandpaper (coarse and fine grain)
  • Paint or stain of your choice

Step One: Preparation

The first step is to find pallets that are stable and have no broken planks or other major damage. Make sure pallets have no splinters, as well as any nails that may have become loose or rusty over the years. Sand any rough spots with coarse grain sandpaper. Then, use fine-grain sandpaper to give the wood a smooth texture. After this, use a damp cloth to collect the dust.

Step Two: Assembly

Take two pallets and lay them face down on the ground and connect them together using wood screws and glue. Make sure all four corners are secured, and that the pallets are firmly connected. You may need a drill to make the process easier.

Step Three: Finishing Touches

T55ake the third pallet, and line it up with the two already-assembled pallets, making sure they are flush. Secure it with wood screws and glue. The next step is to paint or stain the table to your desired color. Allow the paint/stain to dry before putting it in use.

Step Four: Enjoy!

Once your table is complete, enjoy your new masterpiece! You have made a timeless and eco-friendly piece of furniture that can last for years to come.

Making a coffee table out of recycled materials can be a great way to add a unique piece to your living space without making a huge dent in your wallet. And, you get the benefit of knowing that you have kept pallets from ending up in a landfill.
