Building furnitures out of (old) pallets has become very popular for DIY projects. Especially a coffee table is the perfect DIY beginners project.
I was stoned when I saw an illuminated pallet coffee table so I had to create my own version with several enhancements.
I think the finished pallet coffee table looks pretty impressive especially in a twilighted environment.
My focus/features for this DIY project:
For the build I first had to equal the size and layout for the pallets so that they fit together when joined without overhanging each other.
I have used very old pallets which were partly rotten which was not the best idea. I took a huge effort to repair them (watch my video below). So you should go and look for new ones - they should be payable.
I removed some stands in the middle of the pallets and build a sub construction which carries all pallets. On the cross strut I mounted the LED stripe, its power cord goes through to the top of the lower pallet waiting to be connected to a power bank. I have made profiles by my compact router for the window frames at which I glued milky pvc glass. For further details just watch my video below.
Used Tools: I have used my Festool TS55 track saw, my compound miter saw Makita LS1018L and a drill.
Difficulty: Appropriate for all Beginners
