How to Make a Small Coffee Table with Wood Pallets
Do you have some wood pallets lying around and you would like to reuse them in order to create a coffee table for your living room? Then you have come to the right place! Here you will learn how to easily turn your old wood pallets into a perfect, small coffee table.
Tools and Materials
- Wood Pallets
- Tape Measure
- Circular Saw
- Stainless Steel Screws
- Sand Paper
Step 1: Prepare the Pallets
To begin, select two wood pallets of the same size that you plan to use. Be sure to inspect them for any damage and make sure they are free from wood rot and splinters. If necessary, use a hammer or a jigsaw to cut any rotten or broken sections and make sure the edges are smooth and even. Also, if necessary, you can use sandpaper to sand down any rough areas and splinters.
Step 2: Cut the Pallets
Next, use a tape measure and a circular saw to cut the pallets down to the desired size. If you want your coffee table to be 24” x 38” then you need to cut both pallets with a circular saw so that they match.
Step 3: Attach the Pallets Together
Now it’s time to attach the two pallets together. For this, you need to use nails or stainless steel screws and a hammer. Start by nailing the two top pieces of wood together, then move to the bottom pieces. Make sure you use enough nails or screws in order to construct a sturdy and durable frame.
Step 4: Finishing
Lastly, you can add any finishing touches you like to your new DIY coffee table. You can add a layer of stain, paint, or polyurethane to the top to give it a polished look. You can also add some handles or wheels to make it easier to move.
And that’s it! You now have a unique and stylish small coffee table that you created yourself with wood pallets.
