I was given some outdoor chairs but just didn’t have the cash to go and find a table to go with. So, as any other woodworker out there would do…you go through your scrap lumber. I had just enough treated 2×4’s to come up with this simple table and played a bit with the construction to add some interest to the piece. Outdoor woodscrews and a couple of brad nails here and there (when the start to rust a little it will add “character”). I also added in some sacrificial pieces on the bottom to help stabilize it on the peagravel patio it resides upon.

Thanks Jim! Not as prolific of a producer as yourself but I’m trying to do the best with what’s available.

I like it. Very stout to hold a few beers while you’re barbecuing.
