I know many of you have seen and probably coveted the old rail carts that everyone is using for coffee tables, but if you can’t afford the real thing why not make one!?

Here’ an old tutorial I pulled up with some updated photos on how to make a pallet coffee table.

I used a square and cut off the sides, to clean-up the sides.

I had some old wheels that I attached to the underneath using 3″ lag bolts.

      A lot of home improvement type stores have them. Tracker Supply has a really good selection, but places like Harbor Freight or Menard’s have them at really good prices. I would love to see the finished product!!! :)
