With a little treated wood, minimal tools, and piece of marble, you can make a fantastic garden table.
Make Your Own Garden Work Table
Using a 12' 4x4 post, I cut 4 legs at 36"
Then I cut a top frame and shelf frame out of 1x4.
since I was working with a piece of marble I already had, I made the table top 19"x 37 1/2 "
Using a level and square ruler, I screwed the 1x4 to the top of the each post and a foot from the bottom.
Place wood slats for bottom shelf. Using 1x4 wooden slats I had from another project, I screwed each slat to the frame.
This marble top came from a coffee table that I no longer used. So, I placed it on top of the work bench for a little pizazz!
You can use any metal, ceramic tile, or cut wooden slats for the top.
With scrap tin, I cut 8 rectangular pieces 4"x8 " long. Then bent them in half and screwed to corner of table. I finished off the tin with a sealant to inhibit rusting. I made this table for our new greenhouse, but now I'm thinking of using it on the patio!
