    Default Kitchen Table Project.

    G'day Chaps,

    I've just downsized to a much smaller home in a beachside town and as a consequence, my kitchen table was way to big! What a pain. This got me thinking that maybe l should just knock up a smaller table myself. Decision made. The criteria l had was that it would be rustic / beachy, and the process had to be simple. No fancy joinery, just the use of a biscuit joiner.

    As it turned out it was the same time as hard rubbish day so l went on the scrounge and found a pile of old junk on the nature strip where someone had dumped the timber remains of an old hardwood chook yard. I backed up the ute and filled it with timber that l could use to build my rustic kitchen table.

    I documented the process in a series of 3 videos from the start of the project to the finished product. If you're interested in seeing how the project went, l have pasted the three links to the three videos below. The end product can be seen in photographs at the end of the 3rd video.

    Hey Knackers,

    Great Video and Build. I recently built a few rustic outdoor tables myself. Sick of wasting $400-500 on the crappy bunnings glass outdoor tables when after 2 years the glass top shatters in teh heat and the chair fabric is completely ruined. So thought it would be wiser to spend a few more $$$ and get something taht will last a little longer...

    Hey Renovator,
    Great job mate. Love what you did with the old basketball floor boards. It's amazing what you can come up with a little imagination. Good use of those powder coated saw horses too. Cheers
