How to build this unique Table Top
This is just a quick video on how I went about making this 'kind of interesting' bench top
from pallet pailings.
Run the circular saw up against the
speed square to get the first edge.
Push the pailing against the wall.
Then mark the overall length.
These pailings are around 60mm wide,
so I want my squares to be 60 x 60.
But since my bench-top slips underneath
the wall face, I put a little mark where
I want to start my measurement from.
For this length I want it to be double ended,
so I mark my squares and screw holes
before moving on.
Clamp the piece to the bench on the waste side and don’t cut the final length
until you have done all the shallow cuts.
Set the depth of the circular saw to
around 10mm, or roughly half the
thickness of the pailing.
Use the speed square again to keep the cut nice and straight.
Then cut the final length.
Pre-drill the holes
and give them a chamfer.
I then gave it a light sand with the 120 grit.
I folded a piece of 80 grit sandpaper in half
and ran that back and forth through
Then I work out what shade of blue
I want to go where.
These are just some cheap acrylic paints
that I mix down with a fair bit of drying retarder so I can leave the paint out on the bench all day without it drying out.
And then I move on to the next piece.
It is slower doing one at a time, but if I did these all at once I would get too confused
with the colour and pattern placement.
Well that's it. If you want some more
information on this build.
I go into a bit more detail in my video
over on YouTube.
Or feel free to ask me any questions in the comment section of that video
and I will get back to you as quick as I can.
