So a week ago my dad got all these 2×4’s, and plywood from his work. He does heating and cooling for a living and when the units come in they come in these wooden crates. My dad just recently staring grabbing this wood and it’s been sitting here so I decided to do something with it. I plan on making a full patio set with chairs and all once we accumulate a little more wood. I started the project with the Frame I used lap joints to hold it all together. I used no dado stack and there are only 4 visible screw holes on the whole project. After the frame was built I cut the 2×4’s to length. 4@ 30”, 2@ 26” and 2@ 20”. I then butted the boards together and made a quick jig using scrap wood to trace a circle on the boards. I cut each board individualy with a hand held jig saw. After that I used a palm sander and 60-80grot sand paper to smooth the jig saw cuts. Next I planed all the top boards flat and re rounded over all the edges. I made little spacers when assembling to get perfect gaps between each board for the table top. The spacers were a little under a 1/8in thick. I did not finish it yet but I plan on using bullseye shellac by zinser. I’m not worried about ware or weather because this piece won’t be exposed to the elements other than climate change. I plan on having sketch up drawings and a full video of this table and the rest of the patio set when it’s finished. Follow my youtube channel for updates.
Thanks, Joe.
