Needed a good looking table for my new deck and couldn't find anything I liked locally. I used left over wood my deck to cut down on the cost annnnd get rid of the stack of wood on my driveway!! :). The biggest obstacle I ran in to was I had to buy a 6x6 for one of the legs and a few of the 2x6s for the bench top. The issue, they weren't as dry as the others and through some of measurements off. I knew that going in to it and made the adjustments where I needed to. Can't wait to get it stained and sealed so I can start building the L Couch!
