Industrial style side table using reclaimed pallet wood and metal.

The wood was stained then treated with a clear satin finish. The metal was brought to a semi-bright finish using flap discs supplied by United Abrasives. After the metal was cleaned it was then treated with a paste wax to resist fingerprints and prevent rust.

    love the epoxy idea with the pallet wood. it still looks rustic and at the same time looks very smooth with no compromise on either side.

  6. Nicely done Brandon. Congratulations

    Couldn't tolerate the music long enough to get to the end of the video.  Guess I'll never know how it turned out.

    Wow, you made a lot of those little false rivet gusset plates. They really dress up the project, nice work.

  12. Larry Wright says:

    Great job. Just wondering what you call them little half round pieces, that you welded in the corner plates? Thanks
