A strong storm blew over our patio table which had a glass top. They wanted over $100 to replace the glass top. For less than $20 I made this talbe top from cedar fence boards and spar varnish.

Very nice table and a great savings. I was thinking about doing a similar thing only with tile on the top.
It looks like you have a real nice setting for it there with the pool, too. Great job. Thanks for sharing.

$20 for the top, spend $75 on tools and you save a grand total of $5!

that’s interesting… I have a bar style (horseshoe) patio table that I hate. Maybe this is just the thing to spruce it up. I already have the cedar boards too.

Good project Glenn!
