Once we have removed all the boards, we will cut them with the needed dimensions to mount the table. 4 strips will mark the height of the table, this strips will come from the beams ​​of the pallet, 20 boards will cover the perimeter, and 6 more will be used on the upper base, however the measures of the boards will depend on the final dimensions we want to give to the nightstand.

We will join together the slats as if we were going to build a box, the axis will be made with the 4 beams from the diassembled pallet, you will have to tie the structure simply wrapping the 20 strips around its perimeter.

Finally we’ll nail the boards above, they will be placed all very close so then the table will be more useful, and nothing would be able to fall in the gaps between the boards.
