Showcase cover image for New Outdoor Table

Project Information

The old table was getting a little weathered and was too small anyway. So it was time to build a bigger table and refinish the old. The new table will seat six comfortably, the old four. They can be pushed together to seat? A bunch.

I used clear redwood with a stain and Marine Varnish finish. I will be able to compare it to the outdoor oil finish I used on the original table and bench.

Thanks all. I meant to add that I used the Mortise Pal jig to do all the mortises with loose tenons. I'm getting better and faster at making the tennons. I had been trying to plane them to the correct thickness, but this time around I just resawed them on the table saw. It is fast and easy to dial in the thickness. I also used Gorilla Glue which really locks the joints.

Things I would have done different. I would have made it 40" wide instead of 38". I would have spread the posts closer to the ends like with the old table. Oh well… I'm always learning because it is hard to fall out of a hole.

Wow, very nice furniture. Can't tell the old from the new. I've looked at all your projects, and they're all great. Your very talented.
