The pallet is actually ideally shaped as a starting point for a coffee table. It’s essentially a square slab of wood. You can sand it, stain it and slap on wheels or legs with a top (wood, metal or glass) and you have a coffee table.
However, you can completely disassemble the pallet and start from scratch.

I love lift-top coffee tables because I like using my laptop in the living room. If you’re like me, you’ll like this pallet lift-top coffee table design. It’s a bit rough around the edges, but the design is good. You can easily stain it.
