It’s a spacious table we have had for nearly ten years. Initially, the tabletop was glass. Of course, you can imagine how long that lasted when we forgot to fold up the large matching umbrella.
We also added a small strip of wood that sits on the table base in the center for extra support.
Once everything was nice and secure, I sanded the top smooth and then stained the boards with a semi transparent deck stain, Burnt Hickory by Cabots.
