Outside Table

On our last camping trip I learned a valuable lesson......the small outside table that mounts on the rail does not like being left outside during a torrental down pour. Once the rain stopped, I went out side and the particle board it uses had swelled up to about 3 times it's normal size. So after the normal mental ass kicking I gave myself......I decided to chuck the table and was going to buy another. About an hour later I went and dug it out of the trash and removed all of the hardware and decided I would build another. A few days later I thought about using a butcher block to make the table out of and came up with this.....

Looks great - a couple of good coats of marine varnish should protect it from most all elements and give you great service.

I'm using mineral oil to keep it sealed.......that should keep it weather resistant.
