Hello and Happy New year everyone, I’m happy to bring you my first build of 2019 A X style coffee table. This client previously ordered a coffee table for a Christmas gift and was so happy with it they decided to order one for them selves 🙂 I’m using the plans from Ana White with […]
What happens when you have a large amount of pallet wood taking up your limited space??
Why you build a TABLE !!!
The pallet stringers are typically 2×4’s They are great pieces of wood and since they are free its a great resource, but sometimes you tend to keep more than you expect.
So it was time to make use of all these stringers.
The process was easy enough. Get your stringers together and place the flattest part on your bench. Then just start to use your supply of 2.5 inch screws and some glue, and start screwing them all together. 🙂
As you can see i used a set of 6 stringers and screwed them all together creating the shelves.
Next you would have to decide how tall you want your table. For this project i choose to set a height of 30 inches. The length was easy, I kept it 4 feet. Which is the standard length.
Next were the legs. These 2×4 s were cut at 30 inches which is the height i wanted for this table.
Assemble is easy. You turn the flattest side down on your flat table. Take each leg and position it flush on the table as well as the sides of the shelf. This makes the alignment process so much easier. Attach all four 2×4’s to each side of what will be your top shelf.
Your probably wondering how I attached the bottom shelf. I simply used a 2×4 as a spacer to get the height from the floor. Once again you simply screw the legs into the side of the shelf.
To finish off the whole look i trimmed 4 2×4’s ends to fit into the space that’s created between the front and back legs.
Once i finished the build, i face the same problem over and over. HOW DO I FINISH IT !! 🙂 There are so many choices 🙂
SO i kept it simple. I stained the shelves a dark walnut, and chalk painted the legs white.
Simple but eye catching.
Now I have a very strong and heavy hallway table 🙂
