KLUBBO Nesting Coffee Tables with Recycled Pallet tops


Materials: Ikea Klubbo

Description: We updated our Ikea Klubbo nesting tables with wood recycled from a pair of pallets.

We removed the old table tops and used them as a template to cut two 1/2″ plywood squares (meant to serve as support for the new table tops.

Based on the size of the squares, we ripped down boards salvaged from pallets to the same width using a table saw and circular saw and nailed them to the plywood squares.

We built “frames” for the new table tops to hide the raw edges of plywood supports.

The newly constructed table tops were then sanded, stained, and polyurethaned. We reattached them to the table bases using screws and washers.

    Very nice vintage look! Definitely doesn’t look like anything from Ikea anymore. It seems you can make anything from old shipping pallets.
