Here’s a few pics of my finished cedar patio table. It took some time to build, but it’s totally worth it. Total cost was ~$140, which was way cheaper than buying anything similar in a store. The closest I could find pre-made cost $499.

The table top is made from 5/4 cedar decking and the legs are cedar 4×4’s. This is the first project that I completely designed in Sketchup before building. I have posted the complete Sketchup model as well as dimensioned prints on my website:

What kind of finish did you out on it? Will it stand up to the elements if left outside? I’ve never built an outdoor project so I’m curious. Beautiful work!!

Well done.When it comes to your outdoor space, it is really important that you have all the right furnishings in place in order for it to be functional.A great addition to your existing outdoor furniture might be a stylish new patio table.A table truly completes your patio as a venue for fellowship.

Thanks for all the compliments! Gerard, the finish is Sikkens Cetol MRD, a deck/fence stain & sealer. I purchased this from the local HD store. It was a little pricey at around $45 per gallon, but I plan on using it to re-seal my privacy fence as well. If you take a look at my website, you’ll notice that I had a little problem the first time I stained this table, as I used a cheap brush and the brush strokes looked horrible. I stripped, sanded, and re-finished by rubbing 2 coats on by hand with a rag and the finish is just gorgeous now. I love this table!
