This is a patio table I made after we got our new house. This was what got me back into woodworking seriously. All made from cedar. Two halfs separated by a center divider and breadboard ends. There are two cutouts for coolers to place condiments and beverages in when cooking out. Did this whole job with a circular saw, planer and some hand tools. Proud I was able to complete it and it turned out well but glad I have upgraded my shop! It was finished with lots of poly.

The inserts are flower boxes for in front of your window. They are cheap and hold up for years. I recommend a hole in the bottom with a small ball valve. This will allow you to drain rain water but keep cold cooler water in.

Very “cool” – nice work! Fill it with beer and I’ll stop over to make sure it works properly!
