Cottage is a place of fruitful work and at the same time rest. A what a vacation without basic amenities. Of course, the table is an integral attribute of each cottage, and a thing made by their own forces, has much greater value. Therefore, in the article we consider how to make a table for the garden. It’s important to understand that the table will be in most cases on the street, without any protection. Therefore, for its safety and duration service must comply with the special technology of its manufacture.
We prepare the tool and lumber
Before you get started, you need to worry about so that everything is at hand – both a tool and everything you need material. This will significantly save time. So, you will need the following tool:
- A circular saw.
- Electric jigsaw.
- Drill with a set of drills.
- Carob keys.
- Building corner.
- Marker or pencil.
These are perhaps the main tools and items that you will be required. As work progresses, you may be something else is needed. However, if you put together the main tool, work just does not drag out.
So, as for the building material, here in a larger the extent everything will depend on the size and type of table. But basically the same material is almost always necessary, for example:
- Lumber. You can prepare 11 boards four meters long. Their thickness can be 50 mm and a width of 100 mm. Also optional You can also prepare several boards six meters long.
- As fasteners will be used furniture galvanized bolts, as well as washers and nuts.
- Moreover, nails are required, the size of which should be 3.5 × 90 mm, and self-tapping screws, which must be selected according to the thickness of the board.
- An effective tool for bioprotection of wooden blanks.
Getting started assembly

The table top can be made of five boards that are cut to set size. They are attached to the bar using self-tapping screws.
The length of the screws should be such that it can be reliably fix the countertop board to the bar. However, they must not pass through.
If you use a tongue-and-groove board for the countertop, then in the result is a solid plane. The edge of the board can be cut a jigsaw, and process the sides with a plane. If you use a planed board, it is recommended during assembly countertops leave a gap of 4 mm. He will not interfere, but facilitate the care of him. In this case, it is imperative that everyone the gap was the same width. This is very easy to achieve. During assemblies between the boards should be laid rail of the required width, and in Alternatively, you can use the building corner. If if necessary, the surface and sidewall of the countertop can process with a grinder. So you can achieve perfect smooth surface.
We make and fix the legs
We fix the legs of the table
Depending on the type of table you should start preparing legs. One of the consequences of incorrectly made legs –– swinging table. To prevent this from happening to you, each the workpiece must be completely identical in size to the other. There are options for a garden table with three legs. Standard The option is four legs that are attached to each corner. At their installation, you can use bolts or special fasteners, which will hold the entire structure. When assembling them, the docking points can be coated with PVA glue, this will further protect against rocking.
When the table is ready, it must be painted for additional corrosion protection. First, the tree can be painted with stain in several layers, and then cover the table with several layers of varnish on water based, preferably acrylic. It will serve additional protection against moisture and moisture.
