This is made from poplar and oak pallets that I recycled. Got them at the local lumber yard. I used the slats for the top and shelf. then used the runners for the legs and trim. I used two pallets to get the lumber i needed.

Thank you and as for as making the wood look so good, well I had nothing to do with that. All I did was plane, joint, sand and stain with natural stain. The rest is just the beautiful colors in the poplar pallet wood. Sometimes you just get lucky and find the red(or purple), green, and dark brown coloring.

Pallets are time consuming to disassemble. I usually set one day aside just for that when I get ready to start a pallet project. However, the rewards are great when you succeed. I am in the process of getting a tool built to aid in the pallet disassembling. Once I find someone to built it, I will share some pictures.

Very nice. I love pallets. I’d like to do more with them but they’re just so much work to prepare. I have a bunch of short slats still that I want to make a few gifts with. I hope I can find the time.
