This outdoor coffee table. First, I ripped all the two by fours down to three inches in width. This allowed me to remove their rounded edges. Next, I cut the pieces to life. This table is made of only four different lengths of wood, the vertical and horizontal pieces of the legs, the pieces for the table top and the bottom stretcher. After cutting everything, I assemble the legs, I used a pocket hole jig to connect all the leg pieces together. This is a very simple to use a tool and a great investment for only forty dollars. You can also connect the pieces by screwing perpendicularly through the side pieces of the legs into the end grain of the bottom pieces. Although this joint is not quite as strong, I used some clamps on the top of my table saw to help keep the leg pieces aligned while screwing them together.
These are outdoor rated pocket hole. Screws I'm using the pocket. Holes are on the bottoms of the feet and the tabletop, so they will not be visible. However, if you wanted to, you could easily fill them a thousand. I used outdoor rated wood glue for extra strength on all of the luggage weights on the second-leg square. I figured out it was a lot easier to assemble it. All. On top of the table, saw like this. Before putting the legs together, I gave all the pieces a quick sand with 120 grit sandpaper. Then I installed the stretcher connecting the two leg pieces. I sanded all these lats and then decided to stain and seal everything before assembling all the pieces. Together. This is because it'd be too hard to reach in between the gaps between the tabletop boards. I used a bin wax whether to Agustin for everything. If I did this again, I'd probably use something darker, but it still turned out pretty well after the stain dried.
I finished everything with four coats of polyurethane. I used two pieces of 1/4 inch scrap wood to make sure the tabletop boards were consistently spaced. I then screwed into temporary boards to hold them in place. This turned out to be a real hassle and some of the board's ended up being a little bit warped. I think, if I did this again, I probably would either use a cord concrete top or use three two by tens, after centering the legs. I screwed from the top leg stretchers into the bottom of each board. I used at least four deck screws for each board. Finally, I hammered in four feet that will help to keep the table out of any standing water and that's it. This is a relatively simple project and it turned out really well if you already have the tools, this cost like $ 40, to make. Also, if you have a paint sprayer that would save a ton of time putting on four coats of polyurethane took almost as long as the rest of the project.
