This 'How To' video by BeachBumLivin shows how to make a very stylish coffee table using nothing but old pallets. By scouring businesses for thrown-away pallets, you can do this cheaply with the right tools. As you are recycling the wood from the pallets and including Kee Klamp into that mix, the design possibilities are endless!

This Instructable shows how to make your own glow in the dark table.

Interestingly enough, these tables are made to order, so if you like this concept, why not give http://www.design4wood.co.uk/ a call?

This unusual idea shown here in this how to video by Ssmallfry can show how a very basic piece of wood can be used to make a nice looking table very cheaply. You will be covering the entire surface of the table and then sealing it with epoxy; the table top itself can be fairly basic.

Alternatively contacting a local tree surgeon such as Kent Logs is a great way to obtain beautiful table tops such as:
