Hey everyone, This is my latest project. I was told by mama that this was to be done before pool season. It is a bar that i’‘m sure i will be the one tending when she needs a fruity drink by the pool.(yeah ruff life she’s got huh.) Any way i got to get in the shop for a couple days guilt free and use up some scrap cutoffs from the deck to build it. Turned out ok for scraps i guess. This is actually the first time i have used my new kreg pocket screw jig (had to have it to build this, so she thinks hahaha) It works great. Let me know what you think and hopefully she will have me build her something else so i can stay in the shop. (even with the saw going still alot quieter in there.) Thanks for looking.

Remember—-if Mama’s happy, everybodies happy! This was a great use of your scraps. What time did you say the marguritas would be served??

Very cool project and looks awesome. I love the design of the tabletop. Not sure the Kreg screws, though, count as cycled fasteners.
