The top is a 1920s era pallet sans steel feet on an industrial expanded mesh shelf table base.  The base looked much better after it was powerwashed.

Before pallets were made from stapled together scrap lumber, they were made from beech or other hardwood held in place by steel edges.  I removed the steel U shaped feet.  The steel edges and carriage bolts were cleaned with a wire brush on the angle grinder.  The boards were heavily sanded, stained and polyed.  The base is from a defunct millwork shop where it held a pressboard top as a work bench.  The top is approximately 5' by 3'.
