My son and wife were responsible for bringing this kerbside “junk” throw out home.
It lay around waiting for me to dump it when as I finished my other sons (and there is four of them) 1500mm table I ran a tape over it and I discovered I had enough off cuts to restore it.
So I set to work, and this is the result!
Fastest Project I have done in ages!
Most of the materials were already prepared
Biscuit jointed the boards together and then mitered the corners and added the edges.
Two were Yellow Stringy Bark and the other two Mebau
Done and dusted …..and the wife loves it for sitting in the garden enjoying the sun!! what a winner!!

Thats what woodworking is all about !!

Thanks all,

I was going to trash it until I saw the metal frame and how it was made, then with the off cuts I had left over it lives for some time more.

I will have to post a picture of the Princess sitting at it !
