Kitchen bar table jumped in my truck and picked up two huge stacks of pallets for free what a blessing and most of these pallets were in great shape and just needed a good cleaning before use a family member of ours. Let us borrow this pressure washer, so we can clean those pallets really quickly. Now it's always a good idea to return something in better condition to receive it. So we're gonna be changing the oil in the pump and that's just the origin, but in the pump itself, because it has a bunch hours and it needs to be changed.
The pressure washing was easy and surprisingly removed. Some of what appeared to be concrete, caked unto the boards after washing, I gave them a few days to dry. During that time, my wife was preparing in the kitchen. She chose her favorite location and marked it with a long roll of paper and some tape after they dried. It was time for disassembly, which turned out to be a little harder than we planned. Fortunately, after a quick search on YouTube, I grabbed my saw saw and was able to quickly cut through the outer nails.
But the internet were still not that easy. I had to carefully pry with a crowbar and a hammer to remove each board without splitting them, and this took a little longer than expected too. If you plan on having some pilot projects in your future, I strongly suggest purchasing a purposely built pallet removal tool to speed up this process. After removing a large pile of wood, I wanted to give them a light sanding to remove some of the splinters and large dents to help prevent injury in the future.
I tried using a hand sander and it seemed to take forever, and it was at this point that I realized we had received hard wood pallets. So I took my belt sander outside with sixty grit paper and began to remove the top layer. This worked well but, to my surprise, it was still a slow process. With this experience, I gained a new respect for those who work with hard wood, often after sanding a bunch of boards, I headed inside, to start the frame of the table. We decided to keep the bar at 8 feet wide, so we could utilize some standard two by fours.
