DIY Outdoor Dining Table Made of Tigerwood
Use circular saw and speed square to cut pieces for the legs.
1
Seal the end grain with some paste wax.
2
Clamp boards down to a piece of rigid foam and cut through them.
3
Use circular saw to cut along the diagonal line. Cut some shorter pieces to be use as brackets.
4
Use the first piece to mark the lines on the other pieces.
5
Draw a line to use to trim the legs with. Repeat the process for all four legs.
6
Use leg pieces to set angle on circular saw, before ripping one of the deck boards in half.
7
Set blade back into 90 degrees before ripping another piece in two.
8
Take pieces and glue them together with wood glue.
9
Use orbital sander to sand leg pieces. Glue the leg pieces together.
10
Trim the angled pieces to length. Glue and screw the deck pieces to the angled pieces.
11
Add steel right angled brackets to the support piece. Pre drill holes through the legs.
12
Add additional screws through the 3” wide strip that went through the legs itself.
13
Use some nice stainless steel screws with a star head because they will show from the outside. Go back and add some glue and reassemble the pieces.
14
Use stainless steel bolts and screw 2 stainless steel nuts to keep the boards aligned.
15
Drill the holes along each end of the table top. Use clamps to help force all the boards in place.
16
Add in steel mending plates that will hold board nice and flat before adding on the legs.
17
Use circular saw to trim all legs to length. Add additional stainless steel screws to the outside.
18
Wear an RZ mask and sand the table down. Clean wood with acetone and finish it with teak oil.
19
Here is the end result! You could use this table inside or outside because tropical hardwood decking stands up to the elements quite well.
