COFFEE TABLE

RATE THIS:

Here in the UK we tend to recycle everything fom cardboard- glass- timber .This coffee table is made purley from wooden pallets. The pallets have been denailed then surface and thickness planed,Then cut to size before making table then sanded and varnished.Pallets can be found anywhere sometimes you can get them free,only time taken up making furniture from pallets is denailing them,if your lucky pallets are stapled if your unlucky pallets are ring nailed but once you have denailed them and machined the timber you will have good timber to produce what ever you want.And most people will buy your product as its made from recycled timber?

Nice work and nice table design.

I'm glad, on this Earth Day, to read that you work with salvaged lumber.

Congrats.

Nice job. The pallets I manage to get hold of usually turn out to be no better than firewood,you obviosly live in a classier part of UK than me.
