Recycled Pallet Picnic Table

Recycling hardwood pallets I get from work is a easy, free resource of perfectly good wood.  In this post I will be making a beautiful, rustic 10 seater picnic table from otherwise would be used for firewood.  One mans junk is another mans treasure so this project will be a cheap one to build.

From here I never got any more photo’s of the build,  only the finished job. But from here on in you get the idea what happens next. A few more planks for the chairs, a few coats of decking oil and its done!
