This is a table I made for our back porch. I used redwood I had leftover from a picnic table that I built earlier. The tile was something the contractor had left after he built our home. If you look closely in some of the pictures, you will see that I didn’t have enough redwood to get one last table leg. So I took 2 short pieces and made one long piece. It’s a pretty simple design. I used dowels to hold it together.

I haven’t built many pieces (I’m still a newbie), but this table has to be one of my favorites. There is no better way to wind down the weekend than to sit in a rocker on the back porch and enjoy a good beverage. This table sits between two rockers and is perfect for resting drinks, cigars, outdoor candle, etc.

We have a similar one that has been hanging out on the porch for many years. It is all silver, now.

Nice job. That reminds me that I have some left-over tiles from our kitchen remodel.
