We needed a new patio table for our deck and I loved this design. I made it out of cedar which worked beautifully and made a few small tweaks:
- Needed it longer and wider so added two more 2x4's to the middle and added 2x6 end caps (as another poster had done).
- I did not add the holes to the cooler covers for uniformity, they slide in and out very easily.
- I used 4x4's as the legs and constructed the table skirting around it. This is a very sturdy design.
Built some benches for seating and they worked out great.
Overall I loved this build and it was fairly simple. Stained with Penofin deck stain (red label) and a spar varnish for protection.
Hope you like it!
