The wifes friend asked if I could make her an outdoor table for her yard.
I had heaps of pine “rubbish” and the remains of a huge Cable drum lying about cluttering up our yard.
So I set to work it took me two days to make the table and three days to apply the top finish
She wasnt too fussed on the finish and was not even interested in filling the old bolt holes.
The frame is a rectangular box section held together with deck screws
The legs are two pieces of timber glued together at 90 degrees, and simply deck screwed to the frame.
The top is butt jointed with biscuits and the ends profiled using a router and a jig I made.
The bolt holes were plugged the nail holes simply filled pine filler.
I attached the top using pocket holes and screws.
Upon the filler drying it was sanded and given a coat of Sikkens then three coats of outdoor UV resistant clear gloss finish.
The process is somewhat abbreviated,however there is a blog covering the various stages of assembly that was used.
Its not perfect, (there is a twist in the top) nor suitabe for the lounge room but in its designed role should raise a smile, and last a few years.
