Thanks for ya’ll comments.
Yes, Super. I started this during spring break, so I had plenty of help.
It’s funny though, when I mentioned needing to sand four hundred cleats tonight, I didn’t get one single offer for help.

I’m sure the furniture is going to look BETTER than new, once you complete the “upgrade”!!!!

I have that exact same patio table….I leave mine outside so when it rains, I don’t have to wash it…...

Yes, I like this table for the same reason Rick. The solid tables I’ve seen hold water, collect dirt, and have to be cleaned. I don’t like cleaning the dining room table, much less an outside one.

I forgot to mention that I have the matching iron chairs to go with the table…had the whole thing for about 25 years….I stick a 1 1/4” conduit pipe in the center hole, and made an adapter to mount my rain gauge to…works good, and the hole serves a purpose…..:)

Every problem can be solved with a good supply of wood.
