Next step is to cut lumber to desired length etc. See picture below for my detailed measurements.
Sand with 120 grit
Next is to stain. Apply 2 coats. I used a waterproof stain and sealer to guard from outside elements. Stain color is Castle Gray.
*Important to apply stain prior to assembly to get all the hidden parts
Here is what it looked like after. I wanted darker but since this is a budget DIY, kept as is.
Next step is to assemble. I used my brad nailer to attach the boards that lay across the table top in a diagonal manner.
Once done, I attached the sides with the deck screws to secure the table top.
Next was to attach legs, using the lag bolts and washer. 2 lag bolts to each leg.
I also drilled 2 deck screws through the table top on each leg to add more securely to the top.
This project was fun to work on. I plan on doing a full size table after this test run. Here are more reveal pics.
We stayed home this year for trick or treat and hung out in the backyard enjoying this space…
