I wanted a fluted sidetable for my outdoor sitting area, but of course ehen I searched them up online, they were realky expensive. I knew I had some half round left over from another project and decided I was going to make my own instead.
DIY Fluted Sidetable
I bought these at a local lumber years, but you can find them at Home Depot too.
I used the Quikrete 8" x 4 ft building form because I needed a smaller table, but you can get them smaller or larger.
I bought this 10" piece for $9 off someone who cuts and sells these on Facebook Marketplace. It was the easiest since I don't have the tools to make this.
You could skip this step and just glue the half rounds around the tube, but I chose to secure them with nails.
I used a clamp for the first piece to keep it in place, or for any other pieces that may not have been straight enough or had some bend in them.
Gorilla wood glue for each strip.
I cut the half round 2 inches longer than the tube height because I didn't want the tube to touch the ground since it would be outside.
This will be the base of the table with 2 inches above the tube so the tube doesn't touch the cement outside and won't get soggy with rain water.
Next step was to take each cut piece and glue them onto the tube. (Nailing is optional)
Uae the saw dust from cutting your half rounds and make your own wood filler by mixing it into the wood glue. This way you know it matches your wood.
I chose to stain the table top for a contrast in colour. After drying up, I applied water sealer to the table ( sides and top) since it would be an outdoor table.
