There is a local group who is pitching in on a community revitalization project they call porch to porch. One of the local industries bought rocking chairs for the front porches of the homes in this community and the group is making cushions for them and/or upcycling old patio tables to go with them. I had built a small scrap wood mock-up of the bistro tables I put together for my wife and asked them if they would be interested in it if I finished it. They allowed they would. I finished the build and since it was pretty much a paint grade project, had a blast with the paint job. Due to trademark issues, I painted it in the school colors and logo of that fine institution of higher learning Todd Hollow Tech….proud home of the Stump Jumpers…lol
It’s about ready to go out the door and sit on someone’s porch.

That T table would be great for sipping some Long Island Tea. I would welcome it on my patio any day. Might have to change the color here. Nice work Buster.

Marty- thanks buddy. Not sure that they can legally sell that color locally….lol wonder if I could get it shipped in a plain brown wrapper.

Dave- thank you sir. Tried the long island tea on a cruise ….DANG….make sure you put lots of laqour or polyurethane over the logo…if you spill a bit, its bye-bye paint….lol
