I just love this! I'm planning to build all of this next week but I wondered if the back was comfortable with the back and arm rests being the same height.

Stain Source for Beautiful Outdoor Patio Set
Which penetrating transulcent exterior siding and decking stain did you use? And what color?
I made the outdoor sectional sofa last summer and did not apply any stain...and it's weathered a Michigan winter just fine. But would like to finish it now so it looks more polished (and add some protection).
About to make this 2x4 Coffee Table to complete the set!
Aaaaand.....thinking of making the outdoor farmhouse table with built in coolers. :)
Love all your content, designs, plans and videos. Keep being awesome!

Very easy to follow plan…
Very easy to follow plan. Love the finished product. Plan to shrink the length and make a matching end table. Would share the brag photo but I’m seeing Access Denied.

Warped and twisted
Hi Ana, we built this table to go with the sectional and we love both. However, after we put the table together all the wood warped/twisted and now one leg sits 1.5 inch in the air.
Do you have any advise on how to fix this problem? One note, we used deck stain to seal it.

If the legs are 2" thick and the end aprons are 20-1/2", surely that makes the overall width of the table 24-1/2", not 23-1/2". Or have I missed something?

3/4” does not work so make sure you space your top boards before you attach.

Hidden screw holes
Made this to match the Outdoor Sofa from the Modern Comfort Collection. I shortened the length a bit to better my space and used pocket holes/screws to hide the screws. Doing this allowed me to omit the extra box frame on the underside of the table. Turned out as expected... Excellent!
