This table out of Saturday afternoon boredom, really nothing special and only took a couple of hours on Saturday afternoon.

The significance is that all pieces where cut from one 8 foot pine plank (which is all I had) which in turn determined the size of the table.

All pieces cut with a 6 inch makita saw and hit with a 3/4 inch half round. Screwed glued and coated with oil base natural colour decking oil.
All and all a bit of fun.

Thanks for reading
Anthony

Nice table Anthony. It looks fitting for your deck. Woodworking can sure turn a dull afternoon into a respectable one.

Thanks DoubleDD Yep the hardest part was getting the saw out of the shed.

Thanks Recycle Plank of pine transformed into something useful.

Thanks Grumpy Yes those 3/4 half round bits sure bring a piece of wood to life, and so easy.

Thanks Crowie I,m definitely looking forward to getting a bigger shop though, I need a table saw , router table , and a drop saw bench set up.

Thanks again gents.
Have a good day
Anthony

Yes true there really inn,t enough time in life to warrant being bored, Maybe my days in Hong Kong are getting towards the end. Thanks for the comment on the table , it not special, its just that all the pieces where cut from 1 8 foot plank.
Thanks for reading
Regards

1. How did you get the plank in the lift?

I carried it up the stairs

2. Picture 3 The residents must love you!

Yer but generally make my noise when the neighbours are at work, Its a village semi detached actually so only one neighbour

3. Interesting the TB3 Glue has english markings on it.

Cheapest bought in America which is where I get it, Probably half the price as what you can get it for in Aus

4. BBQ is a bit on the smallish size, and I dont see any marshmellows or beer?

Agree it is a little small, we generally cook on an open wood fire though

5. Nice view.

Hard to believe its Hong Kong really, mountains and ocean view. we love it.

6. Are they Bonsai plants?

Nah just roses and geraniums, Its a harsh climate here. Acid rain doesnt help

Oh almost forgot … good job on the table!...and Merry Christmas is it Christmas there yet?

Cheers Rob Merry Christmas to You Aurora and the boys.

P.S Loved the Stickers , they really did make my morning. Golden
