patio coffee desk/table/somewhere inbetween

Life things got in the way but i managed to get a table build in. Made from heat treated pine pallets doesnt require much in terms of tools but a fun project. Only thing i struggled with is getting angles done right so the under brace isnt fully flush but flush enough to glue and screw. Hope this helps with ideas

Looks great @Dark.

 

Is that a wood burn effect, similar to what @LePallet used here? - https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Outdoor/Recycled-pallet-wood-outdoor-table/m-p/15968

Hey jase

 

Surprisingly not a burn technique. It was a  heavy dark walnut stain then a light sand with 120 220 320 grit. Basically after a long stain sand down to where the natural wood just starts show then smooth out using higher grit then varnish with clear coat. Get the same effect using the darker stain
