Here is our pile of wood for the table, not to bad. We decided to use cedar hoping the table would hold up better outside. I went to Menards and picked up the wood and had them make all the cuts, Ana's plans give you a buy list and a cut list, it is awesome. One sales person said they only did 5 free cuts but when I got to the cut station they said they don't charge for cuts. Bonus for me! (notice all the cars in the background? Lots of people garage saleing, it was crazy!)
here. She has amazing plans on her blog. We made a couple of changes to the table. We wanted the table to seat 8 people so we added 18 inches to the length. We also decided to use 4x4's instead of 2x4's for the legs, we liked to look better and thought it would be more stable since it was longer.
Here is my awesome Dad with the frame complete.
Here is the table complete! The Hubs and my Dad finished it in one afternoon.
Next up, the bench that matches!
