This table is an easy build and can easily be amped up in any manner you wish! Keep it simple and create the table top from a sheet of plywood, or get fancy and use a series of boards and a weathered finish. You can even swap the lumber for Cedar or Redwood prefab fencing (4x4 posts and fence boards) and with a bit of elbow grease in the sanding department you have yourself and pretty fancy outdoor dining table.
