Easy to build, you could make several of these in one weekend for a complete set to complement your outdoor seating. You can also easily adjust the dimensions and fashion a coffee table or even a picnic table, resulting in an entire suite of outdoor tables.
The pocket-hole screws are simple to use and when combined with waterproof exterior glue, result in a very strong joint that you can’t see unless you’re looking from underneath. The tabletop slats are spaced ¼” apart from each other for drainage, and you can dress up this design by routing chamfers or roundovers on some or all of the slats.
