Make a Pallet coffee table out of free #pallets and a couple of scaffold planks. A cool Do It Yourself woodburning project that you can make using basic power tools and a broken microwave for the #Lichtenberg Figure, glowing in the dark is an optional extra 🙂 To find out more about #DIY Lichtenberg fractal etchings go and have a look at this playlist.

1st prize winner!!! Table was voted 1st in the 1001pallets competition! Thank you very much!

Made from free materials mostly, 2 pallets, 4 floorboards and 2 scaffolding boards, a piece of glass from the salvage yard, some led lights from ebay.

Tools used
Evolution Rage2 saw & Rage 7 Jigsaw
Challenge belt sander (bearng collapsed on this build)
Makita router, corded and cordless drill, 1/3 sheet sander(developed fault in the power cable)

Many thanks to Alpha industries for providing the glow in the dark powder. Better pics this evening once the sun goes down

Was a long build, a lot of time goes into timber preperation, the endless belt sanding etc. What you get for free you pay for with time, however pallet and reclaimed timber has more character than new timber you find.

    could I mix the glow in dark powder with screwfix's no nonsense water repellent sealer? this way I'm getting a waterproof sealer and the fluorescent effect. plus screwfix's is cheap. I'm off to bed now been a long tiring night shift but I'd appreciate your thoughts. thank you Mr. Bongo

    just watched that from beginning to end it went from a pile of crap to a big fucking WOW(swear words and capitals were necessary to emphasise my point). You are my new god of making stuff from stuff. Table is awesome and someone would pay a lot of money for that and the rest of your furniture in your house is amazing.

  4. That's pretty damn awesome.

  5. Shit shop, shit tools and shit materials= outfucking standing finished product. If this video doesn't inspire people to get out there and build something then nothing will. I've got twice the shop, twice the tools and twice the materials but haven't made anything half as good as this. I'm inspired to get off my ass and make something cool. Thank you and subscribed.

  10. Videonun başlangıç noktası amatörce geldi bana lakin sonuç MUHTEŞEM tebrik ederim …. The starting point of the video sounds amateurish, but the result is great, congratulations.

  11. Good craft work and skill with imagination and creativity. I've done a lot of creative one offs down through the years and watching yourself and the likes keeps the fire burning within . Keep it up brother , people need to be inspired and fuck the begrudgers. Just subbed .

  18. TexasGemTree says:

    You are the first person I have seen to make an art piece where you can actually get TO the lights in case they need to be replaced. I have been astounded that no one else ever seems to understand that yes, those lights do go out sometimes and they do need to be replaced or repaired. Finally! An intelligent artisan!

  19. Harvey Rose says:

    fucking awsome mate work of art

  20. Amazing and very beautiful looks fantastic. love watching projects like these.!!

  21. With what did you finish the wood? Oil or varnish?

  22. Manuel A says:

    That is a very awesome table. Some wood tint like espresso or cherry would make it look even better. Good job!!!!
