Project Information

One of my first "real" projects for household use instead of another piece of shop furniture. Found the plans on Pop Mechanics but needed an excuse to buy a Kreg tool so used it instead of doing a ton of mortise and tenons.

Bought the bench cushions from Pottery Barn. Dumb luck that they were the perfect size!

horob - Thanks for posting the link. I love the work you did. What did you finish it with? I always worry about what to finish exterior projects with. I'm in Texas, and it is normally 98 degrees outside with 100% humidity. Not the best for outside wood…

Great job!!

I've been thinking about building a table for my patio. Good timing and good work. Is that cedar?

Man, that is nice. i assume the Kreg tool you are referring to is a pocket hole tool. Any chance of getting pics of the underside.

Thanks for the comments

Derrek - I googled around and found the suggestion to use spar urethane. It just spent its first week outside in the rain. Too early to tell how well it will last.

kjnwdwrkr - you are correct. Took a few pics of the underside with my camera phone and posted to get the idea.

Great outdoor table, horob! May I ask which Kreg Jig you decided on? Also, did you use Blue-Kote or Stainless screws for this outdoor application? At any rate, well done… that's a beautiful outdoor project. Feel free to post your photos on our Kreg Jig Owners Community site (below) as well! They would be very inspiring for many of our beginning users.
