The simple garden table can be made of improvised materials independently. It can be eaves board, the bar which has remained after building, the wood massif, the leaf of wood boards, chipboard with covering and even the fence will be suitable for table-top. The table-top from red-hot glass will be especially graceful. For production of legs and struts take the processed birch board of 50 mm. Impregnate sanded up, smooth material with septic tank, and then well cover with varnish or paint.

It is the best of all to collect table-top from rabbeted boards 30 mm thick.

If in addition after completion of works to cover top layer of table-top with several layers of water-repellent protector, then it will serve long enough.

Mounting of legs comes to an end with their connection with spreader beam. For bigger durability from above, through cloth of table-top, legs should be fastened with long self-tapping screws. That the table did not shake, it is established on support in the form of equal board. For this purpose it turns over, and actually the support is fastened to legs, however, if the table is used only on verandah, or you have taken thick bars for legs, the support is not required.
