Easy DIY Pallet Wood Table Top Replacement
STEP 1: Acquire a pallet
First, when searching for a pallet make sure you inspect them for splitting wood. If the wood is splitting in many places, when you remove the planks they will fall apart. Once you have a sturdy pallet you will need to remove the top planks.
STEP 2: Remove the planks
The easiest way to remove the planks of wood is with a sawzall. Make sure you have a metal blade and position your sawmill in between the plank and 2x4. Next, saw right through the nails. I found this to be a much better alternative than prying them off with a hammer. You can take them off with a hammer, just be careful not to split your planks in the process.
STEP 3: Sand the pallet top
Once you have your planks of wood off they will be really rough like these.
STEP 4: Assemble the Pallet Wood Table Top
