Made this side table for the back deck. The sun periodically hits it, so I put an oil finish on it so it can be re-oiled as needed to keep it looking good.

Looks pretty good, what’s the purpose of them holes in the bottom?

Well, I had two thoughts on those when I did them. First, I was thinking that she might want to set a small plant on the bottom and if she spilled water on it then it might drain a little quicker. 2nd, I was just playing with some design ideas – just wanted a different look.

That is a nice looking table. I think the holes in the shelf are a good idea.

Not sure about the holes….....I saw the picture and I was thinking they were there to display golf balls.
I think the shape of it alone would have been enough to make the design unique.
