Rustic Trunk Chest Coffee Table Made With Pallet Wood
Wooden trunk coffee table made with reclaimed pallet wood.
Size: W92cm x D44cm x H33cm approx.
Internal Size:W82cm x D36cm x H27cm approx.
I made this trunk coffee table using reclaimed pallet wood.
After I dismantled the pallet I cut the timber to size and sanded it down extensively.
I then put the trunk together with glue and screws, which I then covered with wooden nails.
I used one pair of rusted Gothic arrow hinges for the top and added 2 cast iron handles from a vintage trunk that was beyond repair.
I then gave the inside and the outside of the trunk 2 coats of handmade walnut stain and 2 coats of bees wax to protect it.
The trunk is a little rough in some places due to the nature of the wood and it also shows plenty of signs of wear and tear and the occasional nail from the original pallet here and there but I think this only adds to its character.
