My wife saw some outdoor tables on a recent outing to a theme park. She said they were designed so a person could stand and eat at one. For some reason she thought we needed some for when we hold cook outs. I am all about sitting down when i eat but who am i to argue the point with her. The ones she had seen were mounted on a post set in the ground but I wasn’t willing to dig a bunch of holes in the yard so I told her I would see what I could come up with. After doing a little research, I learned that “bistro” tables are around 36” in height, so I used that as my standard. The bases are made out of pressure treated wood and the tops are 3/4” plywood. I used some home made edge banding and will paint them in colors of my wife’s choosing…lol. They will stored when not in use but I still plan to put a few coats of clear polyurethane on them to see if that will expand their usable life span. This was a fun project to design and build and we will see if they actually see any use.
