We chose this little DIY pallet table project for our Gadgets 4 Guys list because we found it a common struggle amongst guys to come up with cool patio furniture that is relatively inexpensive. So we stumbled across this amazing pallet table creation and luckily the gentleman had given some rough instructions on how to do this.
You can see that some people have taken these wood pallet DIY projects and made them indoor projects but we liked the idea of making this an outdoor table. Too many times we get that table from your local furniture store that doesn’t last through one harsh season (remember we live in Kansas so we know just how quickly weather can be destroyed).
What if you knew the product you were putting out into the elements was going to last through the next 10 winters because you built it? That is where every guy props his chin up just a little bit more and realizes that it wasn’t just a DIY pallet table, but instead a statement. We recommend trying to get even a little bit more create and make some cup holders that go around the table. This will be a huge help for you when everybody is over at the next social event and sitting around your amazing looking table discussing just how much of a “real guy” you are. Then when they go to set their red solo cup down on the table, they will have some nice built in cup holders that will prevent them from putting rings into your amazing looking table.
DIY projects for guys can always be fun and provide a sense of accomplishment but one that everybody can see gives you a sense of pride. If you know of a good place to get some relatively decent pallets you are already halfway to getting this project done. Might as well get started on your own Pallet Table for the patio.
