These outdoor tables are a great size the sit next to an adirondack or deck chair for snacks and beverages. They are 20 inches high and the top is 18 inches square and assembled with pocket screws. The tile on top is removable. Let summer begin!!! Thx for looking.

Nice tables. Is there a reason to leave the tile removable? And, what’s under it?

Paul59 – The tile is resting on some slats. It could be glued down, but the weight of the tile holds it in place plus it is inset in the top of the table so it can’t really go anywhere. Another reason that I did not glue it in is if I ever want to replace the tile I can do so without any work involved other than going to the store. lol

Bill, you can get free plans for these tables on the woodsmith site. Look under the plans and it’s listed with the pocket hole joinery header. When I first decided to build these I was going to use traditional joinery just for the practice. I’m building these for my mother for Mother’s day and ran out of time so I’m building them exactly to plan.

here is link to the site, the plan is Episode 508. The only liberty I took with this plan was to add a couple inches to the height of the table.
