I’ve made several deck side tables over the years. They all look great at first and then Mother Nature wears them out. I am going to make new tables out of Trex with a tile top. I found 18” tile squares, so the top is easy. I was going to attach it to a piece of ply with Power Grab and rest it on a rabbit in the frame or on a strip/cleat of wood screwed to the inside of the frame. Then I was going to use some colored caulk to fill the small gap between the tile and the Trex. Someone mentioned a type of caulk that had some sand in it for ext. use? My second choice was to make the cleats out of red cedar and rest the tile on it with a bit of caulk as the “glue”.
Feedback, better ideas, criticisms, tips…............please let me have it. ;o)
Thanks for all your help in advance! You guys rock!
