A little side table with a big impact.
This project is a great one for a novice builder. You’ll go from a small pile of pressure treated lumber to a neat table in a few hours. A DIY’ers biggest challenge will be connecting the butt joints for the legs. That’s why we suggest using biscuits as shown in the photos.
We took some looking around and found that small patios and small patio furniture can live large. This sturdy table helps make the most of your outdoor square footage.
Since it’s made with pressure treated 2×4’s and 2×6’s, it’s affordable and will last a long time outside. So why stop at building just one?
When you try it, please let us know and share pictures. We just love that.
