Outdoor Beverage Table with a Surprise

Back when I used to have my real estate license, I enjoyed giving my clients who bought homes a unique house warming gift. Anyone can buy something from the store, but projects built in my tiny shop were one of a kind.

There was one couple who I really bonded with. They liked outdoor entertaining, they liked hand crafted furniture and craft beer! I searched for plans for something to build them, but I couldn’t find anything that seemed appropriate. So, I decided to design my own project.

I designed this beverage table to embody everything that they enjoy. One word can sum up the design… multitasking! This outdoor table has a hidden surprise and three uses. First, it’s a table, but take off the top and inside there is a planter that can be used for plants (flowers, herbs, etc). Or fill the planter with ice and it can be used to serve up ice cold beer! Oh, and the top can be used as a serving tray! I like multitasking and like my furniture to do the same!

Want to build one for yourself? Detail plans and instructions are available here.
