Office Meeting Table From Pallets - Pallet Up Cycle Challenge

Reusing pallet wood is quite the challenge. If you find quality pallets, break them down efficiently, and spend time milling them, there is actually some great wood to be found. I cut up around 10 pallets to get enough wood to build a small meeting table for my office. I ended up with many different types of wood, such as, red oak, white oak, pine, poplar, cedar, cypress, maple, a very fibrous reddish hardwood, and one more type I couldn't identify (kind of like maple but was greyish). It was a fun experience. My small jointer and planer were begging to be done after all that work. The size is 42"Lx42"Wx31"H. The base was made with poplar lumber found at a construction site dumpster. They were great to keep the base unfinished and rugged.
