No, I didn’t build the ironwood glider. That glider, though, precipitated the table project. We needed two side tables to complement the new glider on the front porch, so what better to build them out of than decking material? Here you see the wood needed for the two tables at is started, then cut up for one. I decided to show my deluxe router-that-doubles-as-table-saw station, and to pass along that sanding that type of wood inside the shop is a bad idea. It makes really find dust that gets everywhere, and you certainly don’t want to breathe it, so a good mask is essential – even outdoors. Next, I cheated by using pocket screws for the skirt assembly and finished up with an exterior sealer/stain that closely matched the glider. The tables should last a good long while.
