Simple, medium sized coffee table made from pallets
This is my FIRST woodworking project ever!
For the top I used pallet wood and for the legs I used some scrap lumber, that you can see sitting in the back of the first pic.
Tomas Moravec has created many performative works of sculpture, installation and video art since he made this Duchamp-meets-Alÿs piece in 2008, but the video went up just a few months ago.
The brief description notes that Bratislavan trams run on felicitously narrow 1000mm-wide tracks: “A new transport vehicle brings change into the spatial perspective of a passenger in motion and generally changes the life of the city, through which the pallet can run, guided by a map of the city lines.”
Furniture works by Juan Murphy, incorporating and riffing off reused materials:
“Pallets, cable drums and wooden crates are a means of transporting various goods. Each has its own iconic form and function. Due to their versatility and solid structure they have been used within different scenarios as furniture.
The designs are inspired from various sources and interests. Within the designs I have also incorporated the use of metal, creating bespoke elements.”
We’re sitting here thinking … wow, one can do so much with pallets. Check out these amazing daybeds and couches from using pallets. They require minor woodworking skills such as sanding, cutting, bolting, and etc. but worth the effort. Whether you prefer a whimsical style or laid back style, these inspiring designs give you hope for acquiring an unique up-cycle and re-purpose furniture. Best thing about daybeds and couches supported by pallets is that they fit with any theme, color, and room (or outdoors if you choose). And think about it — you don’t even have to lift and push a whole sofa or couch into a room anymore with a daybed or couch like these. Simply just pallets, mattress, and throws.
