Building a pallet coffee table
The first step of the woodworking project is to build the pallets for the coffee table project. In order to get a professional result, we strongly recommend you to select the pallets with great care and to select the ones that are in a good condition.
In order to build the top pallet for the coffee table, we recommend you to remove the brown slats. Make sure you remove the slats with attention without damaging the rest of the pallet.
Continue the project by building the bottom pallet for the table. Make sure you remove the brown components using a nice cat paw or a hammer. Make sure you don’t damage the wood when removing the components.
Continue the project by assembling the two pallets together. In order to get a professional result, we recommend you to drill pocket holes through the supports of the top table and to insert 2 1/2″ screws into the bottom pallet.
Make sure you align the components with attention and leave no gaps between the components before inserting the screws. Add glue to enhance the bond of the joints.
Last but not least, you need to attach the caster wheels to the coffee table. Make sure you align the wheels with attention and you secure them to the table thoroughly.
Top Tip: Check if the wheels are secured properly before continuing the woodworking project.
One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper.
Top Tip: In order to protect the lumber from water damage, we recommend you to cover the components with several coats of paint. Place the coffee table in a proper location and move it whenever necessary.
