I enjoyed making this, but enjoyed it even more when I delivered it. The gutter is for ice and drinks. Every singe board was from a pallet.

Wow that is awesome!! My wife would love one of these! Do you have any more information on how you attached the gutter and supported it? Thanks!

Saw a similar project on Pinterest and got the immediate request from the Honey. Yours looks awesome. The beverage trough is such a great idea. Did you incorporate a drain for the ice melt or can you remove the gutter? Would also love to see the underside and how you support the gutter. Wonderful job.

Thanks you guys for looking! I actually thought about this gutter thing for awhile (drain, cleaning it out, ect…). The design I came up with for this one is a 2×6 running underneath the length of the gutter. The cross supports were then attached to the 2×6 and the table slat support. So, the gutter is just sitting (very snug) on the 2×6. This allows the gutter to be removed and cleaned if needed. As far as drain holes is concerned, there are none. I did not seal the end caps which allows the water to escape dripping by the table legs not your legs. The customers said keep it simple when I asked them about installing drains and plugs. I am sure the original idea for me to make this was from Pinterest. I get a lot of “Hey can you make this” and I LOVE IT!

Great project. I was wondering what the gutter was for – great idea.
