Default Rustic Cedar Table

My wife wanted a rustic looking table for the pool area. So I pieced this together with some 2xs and old weathered cedar fence pickets.







The top was easy. Trimming out the legs and braces were a pain. I didn't get many pictures of that process. I was just ready to get it finished.

Great job, that turned out awesome. I have several projects like this in mind for around our place.

Did you use nails or staples to attach the cedar?

Thanks! I used nails out of little senco finish nailer. Nailers are the best thing since sliced bread

Right on, I replaced all the molding in my old house and the best part was using the nailer.

Thanks.

Sweet! I'm gonna have 120 more weathered fence pickets by tomorrow afternoon when me and the neighbor complete the second half of our shared fence. Was looking at what I could do with some of them and this might be the ticket.

Thanks! It's all covered with pickets. I ripped the pickets down and tried my best to hide the fresh cut sides.

That table holds cold beer and a nice warm steak perfectly, not to mention the great homemade salsa and hot sauces.

Thanks! It wasn't the fun part of the build. I might need to cover more underneath. I realized the other day that you can see quite a few 2x4s exposed when you are in the pool
