My outdoor table had reached the end of its life and so my Wife decided WE wanted another.
I bought a couple of cheap timber slabs from the local hardware shop, a couple of strips of pine, two 3m lengths of angle iron and some black painted square tubing.
Slabs were sanded flat and the pine had the words “Good Food, Good Wine, Good Friends” carved into it and then filled with black resin. A basic square frame was made from the angle iron and then the black steel legs were also welded into place.
Using some threaded rod, I made some bench clamps to pull the slabs together against the pine, and then the whole thing was screwed to the steel frame.
Should look Ok with a few coats of clear.
A seriously big table for about $250 (Aussie dollars - that’s about 78c US). Perfect for BBQ’s and late night, alcohol-fuelled world-saving discussions. Sufficiently robust for Zorba style table dancing…
