How do you like the idea of building a garden table yourself? If you need new furniture, you should think about how to do it. Building a garden table yourself is as easy as making a coffee table out of pallets. Both tables are pretty similar, though they can perform different functions. Customize your garden table to your priorities and it becomes an integral part of garden design. With the appropriate decoration, such as a beautiful tablecloth the garden table becomes a real eye-catcher! Here are some ideas on how to build original tables.

Filler: Screw holes with filler are suitable for outdoor use
Emery paper: grain size 120
Hacksaw or chainsaw
Bevel knife and a protractor (he should get angles)

Step 1. Making the tabletop
Cut the upper plates to size. Shape the corner diagonally using a plane, then cut the two ends with a support rail to length with 50 degrees end level. Place one of them on the workshop floor and draw a line around the profile for easy legging later. Lay the boards on the supports to check the seat so that there are about 4mm gaps between them.
Use a 100 x 4.5 mm nail as a spacer. Adjust this distance more or less on the supports. Hang the edge plates over the supports 5 or 10 mm. Make sure that the shell is square with a rafter square. Attach the top plate to the spacer with the 57 x 8 g screws. Lower the screws slightly below the surface.
Step 2. Making the legs
Cut the legs in the appropriate size and shape. Place your legs on the floor in their designated positions. Use a ruler to check the underside of the legs. Mark the case depths. These should be half the thickness of each thigh.
Remove the housing waste with the saw and the chisel
Paint the case
First, paint all the joints before you fasten them together. Tackle your legs together with two nails to temporarily hold the shape and attach the two with screws – 57 x 8g screws for each end. Then screw your legs together on the case with two or more screws. Put the two pairs of legs in this way.
Step 3: Assembly
Cut the upper ends of the struts. To get the dimension, keep the legs in square shape. Cut the shape to length and screw it on.
Step 4. Finish your table
F Fill all screw holes with a filler and allow to dry. The table is now ready for painting or coloring
