      Very nice. My dad used to salvage oak pallets and use them for various furniture building projects.

        Thanx

        The material was salvaged at the port of anchorage. It was some kind of crating for barrel shaped objects. The 10' planks had chalks placed every few feet. They were rough sawn and pretty low quality, twisted, warpped, etc. I cut them down into workable sizes, rough planned with your typical power planner then glued, screwed and clamped them together. Because of the twisting and warping the surface was very uneven. I used a hand power plane to clean them up. It is stained with minwax gunstock color and finished with several coats of polyurethane . The finished table weights about 40#.

          Dunnage is the part of a truck, train, or ship load that is used to secure cargo . . . the part that isn't cargo and isn't truck/train/ship. Pallets, blocks, tie downs and stuff like that . . . Im guessing he used the stuff from disassembled large pallets. Looks great too!

            We posted at the same time. So . . . how did you get it out of the port, is there a place outside the secure part where they dump this or do you work in there?

                Just beautiful
                I love oak, the wood grain just says "I'm tough"
                You must have a planer.
                Again, Nice!

                  Nice work, snowbear! Projects from scrounged material are somehow sweeter and more personal, IMO. Love that lip around the edge, too; my dog has the Tail of Godzilla and things are constantly going airborne.
