  1. Projects Patio table replacement

    My lovely wife asked for a replacement front patio table. (See last photo) we have used that ugly thing for 18 years, still hold a scotch or old fashioned pretty darn well. I had an idea in my head for a unique table big enough for some snacks and a place for a few drinks while enjoying some...
  2. Router Sled

    This is the router sled I made this weekend t to plane a wood slab I had. Going to make a patio table from the slab.
  3. Mesquite Patio End Table

    This table shows my continued interest in putting mesquite and iron together. It's 24" high and 25×22 on top. There's a lot of iron work in comparison to the wood work, but I haven't seen a lot of this type of construction out there. I think I'll put a shelf in the next one.
  4. Picnic Table

    I wanted to make use of a bunch of 6×6 cut-offs I had from a deck project, so I ended up with this on my deck. It's 9' long and 42" wide. Probably weighs 350lbs. It's held together with 6" sts screws and 3" deck screws. I'll do a couple of 42" long benches for one side of it eventually. Haven't...
  5. Patio side table

    I spent about 10 days back on the West coast at my vacation house and happened upon a project that just sort of formed out of the blue. I had an old gas grill that had fought the good fight but had long ago given up working to any degree. For the last few years, it had occupied some prime...
  6. I turned a single 2x4 into a side table

    I wanted to build a side table for a chair I just got done building. I wanted it to be simple (no difficult angles, cuts, joinery, etc.) and inexpensive. I used an 8' 2×4, I also had to use an additional 12" of another 2×4, however, a 10' 2×4 would have worked perfectly. I cut all the pieces...
  7. Patio Table from Reclaimed Cedar

    My youngest daughter is in college in KC and she and 4 of her friends moved into an apartment off campus in January. They have a small balcony they like to sit on and have coffee and she thought it would be nice to have a little custom table to put out there. Hence the table project shown here...
  8. Fire Pit Table

    We were in need of a new table for our deck. I thought it would be nice to be able to have a small fire pit built in to it. The top is concrete with a drop-in LP burner. The table base is red oak finished with GF gel stain and GF outdoor varnish. I have a 20# propane tank sitting inside of...
  9. Refinishing Cedar Picnic Table

    My wife's grandmother passed away this spring and this very old cedar picnic table is now in our care. The wood on the table is still in excellent shape, just looks a little rough. I took out every single screw and dismantled every single board. LOTS of sanding with the orbital sander, belt...
  10. Tile top Patio end table

    We needed to update our cheesy patio table, and I had left over marble tiles. So I thought of this simple basic design, with a few elements to give it interest. Standard 2×4 cedar board from HD, tile is 12×12 and the table is 18 inches tall.
  11. Adirondack Style 3 Height Table

    Finished the Tall Tables to go with my Tall Chairs ! I used the front legs of the arm chairs to give the same outward camber that makes the tables very stable. The cross braces are the same pattern as the chair leg braces, doubled and half-lap jointed in the middle. The 1 1/2" space will allow...

  13. Build it, and the mess will stop!... That's what she told me...

    Hello Readers! Build it, and the mess will stop!... That's what she told me, and I might have to agree with her. This was another project that my wife asked me to build for her (seems to be a trend… yes…). To replace an old ratty hanging cubbie storage for my oldest daughters closet (nightmare)...
  14. herringbone outdoor table top

    I was asked to make an outdoor table top based off a picture the client had seen for a DIY project. The top was in a herringbone style. I sketched it up (not really, used SketchUp) in a few different formats hoping to get them to reconsider the herringbone pattern. I was hoping to make the...
  15. patio lounge table with hidden garden

    Some pics of my most recent table. I added a hidden planter box in the middle that I filled with blue fescue. I chose this ornamental grass because it breaks up the otherwise straight lines of the top. This table is made from clear vertical grain western red cedar. The grain is very tight and...
  16. Fold down Patio Table

    Not really sure where I got these plans but I know they were on freewoodworkingplan.com. It was a difficult build but turned out nice. Breaks down so you can store it for winter or in our case, hurricanes!
  17. Wood & Lumber
    I'm a woodworking enthusiast but have not built or finished any outdoor furniture (other than stuff like cedar steps that will remain unfinished). The harvest table is a simple and rustic design but will be a large piece (12'x40") with a couple of freestanding benches. Its size and design will...
  18. Joinery
    I'm building a live edge patio table. First timer with woodworking so learning as I go. I've viewed several YouTubes and read many articles - none provide any detail on the length of the 'insert' I should use to attach my table legs (28" U shaped with 4 holes). Should I use 20mm or 30mm...

    Pallet Patio Table with benches set! This week I embarked on my latest creation adventure which I made out of pallet wood boards… a patio table with benches! I wanted this to look prestine and clean while maintaining a sort of rustic feel that the pallet wood gives to it. So I went through my...
