As we mentioned earlier, the pallet is a widely used part to make various furniture such as sofas, armchairs, panels, beds, tables and much more. In addition, it can be found at open fairs, supermarkets, and stores, or can be purchased at a very affordable price – from R to R per piece – to be broken down and treated as appropriate for the project. It’s no different with the pallet table and there are several uses for the part beyond the traditional format, as we’ll try next:
Advantages of a pallet table
There are basically 4 models that can be assembled with the pallet: the low or high coffee table, the dining table, the desk and even a sideboard. The great advantage of the pallet table is the cost, because if you have a price that is much higher in relation to other types of wood, buying a pallet table can be cheap. Now, if you’re a fan of a DIY (do it yourself) and want to do it at home, your cost will be even lower! It depends on the model, your skills and tools.

The installation of rollers on the pallet part is easy and the result can be excellent. That way, anyone can move the coffee table to a different corner of the house as needed.

To add color to the table model, the green color was the first choice for the interior of the pallet piece, where there is room for books, magazines and small decorative objects.

In this proposal, the pallet center table was mounted on two pieces of material that were mounted on common rollers. This way the table is higher – another tip of this model is the use of glass on the top, which preserves the wood and makes cleaning even easier.

In addition to the traditional finish in the natural color of the wood and varnish, you can choose a color color of your preference to apply to the wood: a way to escape the pattern and match the color of the environment in which it is to be inserted.
Palette dining table
Although the centerpiece is the easiest way to make at home, it is possible to use the range to create complete dining tables. One of the options is to use the part as a base or disassemble it to nail and adjust the slats on a mounted top. It is common to use other materials and types of wood to make the feet or base of the table.

How to make a step-by-step pallet table (DIY)
Learn how to make a pallet table with simple, didactic steps in this super cool tutorial from the Joyce Jeffries channel.
Can’t view the video now? We have created a small log with an overview of all the steps required to set up a pallet table – see below:
Step 1: choose your table size
As the video shows, the first step is to choose the dimensions of the pallet table to be assembled (in the example it is used as the base 52cm by 1.19m).
Step 2: find the parts of the pallet
It takes 2 to 3 pieces of pallets: although they can be found with ease in fairs and shops, their state of preservation must be taken into account as the wood must be in good condition.
Step 3: remove the pallet
Use a hammer to disassemble every piece of pallet you have collected.
Step 4: cut the slats to the size you want
Use a hacksaw or hacksaw to cut the wood slats according to the size you have chosen for your desk.
Step 5: screw and secure the slats
In this step, you will need the following materials: bar clamp, base to attach the slats (part of the pallet itself was used in the tutorial), dough for filling wood, tape measure, screws for wood, drilling and sanding, or standard sandpaper. The first step is to make the holes and start attaching the screws, attaching the slats to the chosen base. Use the clamp to secure and close all the slats before screwing them together.
Step 6: apply the batter
The wood mass is used to cover natural imperfections in the material as well as the perforations and screw heads. Apply it and wait 24 hours for the material to dry completely. Use the sander or sandpaper on the end before applying the varnish and varnish.
Step 7: apply the sealing ink
Some brands already offer the paint with a sealer, in which case skip this step. Otherwise, coat the wood with sealing paint and let it dry for at least 2 hours.
Step 8: applying varnish
Apply the varnish to get the desired shine. Remember that if you like it, you can use a different and colored image in place of this type of finish.
Step 9: foot attachment
After drying, the feet can be attached to the wood. There are a wide range of options with metal materials, wood, plastic, and others. In this case, choose the best model that suits your environment, including the desired height for the table.
