Reclaimed Wood Project: Pallet Coffee Table

I am currently working on my first reclaimed wood project: a pallet coffee table. So far, I have been able to remove a few of the wood slats from the pallet, sand them until they are smooth to the touch and stain them. Below is a picture of my progress on the wood. There are a couple of boards that have been sanded without stain (before) and then a few boards with the stain (after). The stain color is Minwax’s Early American 230, which I picked up at Lowe’s. The total cost of the project so far is below.
