Patio Table Woodworking
Plans from The
Kreg Tool Company.
You Can Build This Patio Table!
These patio table woodworking plans are one of the 15 plans included on the "Pocket Hole Project Plans CD." This table base is made from 2x4 Western Red Cedar, and the top is made from 1" thick cedar, so it is suitable for outdoor use. It could also be made from pine, but the wood would need to be finished to make it weather resistant.
If built as shown the table top measures 18" deep and 21" wide, but the plan could easily be modified to change the size. The table legs are tapered in the plan, but could be built more easily without the tapers. The plans also call for the use of a router to round over the edges. If you don't have a router, you can still build this table!
The diagrams in the pdf for this plan are easy to follow.
The CD With These Patio Table Plans is Available from Amazon.
This CD has 15 pocket hole woodworking plans, one of which is these patio table woodworking plans. The others include a chair, a simple wall shelf, a desk, a workbench and much more. Many of these plans would be suitable for the beginner woodworker!

Or you could make it just as shown on the patio table woodworking plans!
For making the table top, you will be doing some edge joining, so a Kreg Face Clamp would be very helpful.
