How to build an end table with pallet wood. while using simple plans and simple tools and keeping things of a fraction of retail cost. So if you're new here consider subscribing the best part about building your own furniture. For me is that you can get the exact measurements that you want, my sofas, it's pretty deep, so I needed something that was long and narrow. So coming up with the measurements myself, I have a bunch of scrap wood. I pulled apart some pallets a while back. So that's what we'll be using for this project here, however, you can easily build these end tables using one by four boards and I'll leave the details in the description box.
First, I'm starting by cutting the leg. I found a size guideline on Wayfarers website that suggested end tables should be within two inches of a sofas arm height. So, for example, my sofa arm is 24 inches tall, making an end table anywhere between 22 to 26 inches high ideal. So here I'm assembling the legs using wood, glue first and attachment to do leg pieces together so that they create an L shape and then just fasten the boards together using one and a quarter, inch nails and my nailer and I'm just using a rag to wipe off the excess glue, then just repeating those same steps for all four legs.
Next, I'm attaching the short aprons here, I'm showing you to attach the apron to decide the leg without the seam and then attaching it flush with the edge of the legs and again just fastening. The two boards, together using wood glue and one and a quarter, inch nails and annealer and probably using about 4 to 5 nails per leg to the apron. Now I'm attaching a short apron number two and measuring it three inches from the bottom and then I'm just repeating these same steps to create two sides: I'm assembling this upside down. So now I'm attaching the long aprons in paying special attention that these long aprons line up flush with a short apron. Now, I'm onto attaching the second set of long aprons and again, I'm lining them up flush with the short aprons.
Next, I'm going to flip this over right-side up and make sure that the slats that I cut for the bottom shelf and the top fit everything looks good. So now I'm gonna take these flats off and I'm going to attach them with wood glue and one and a quarter inch nails and my nailer, as you can see here, these boards are old, weathered warped dirty. So I'm not looking for perfection here to me. I think it's charming, it adds character, but if it's not your style, then just head over to the hardware store and pick up some 1x4 furring strips or common boards. I'll link, a video below of the eight-foot, long and narrow, console table that I built and using some stain I was able to achieve this, weathered look and here in lightly dipping the brush into the can wiping off the excess and dry brushing it button.
