Welcome Harry, I always recommend the Kreg Jig to newcomers. It is such a handy jig you have to be careful not to use it more than you should. You will find it is the first thing you will think of even though there are other methods available. This seems to be a good forum when there is some thing that what other options on.
Hello My name is Kristi. I live in Fargo ND. I am a beginner DIY/ woodworker. I brought the Kreg jig to help me build a bench for my daughter's patio. I have been on this site looking at all the video's (love the video's!) and projects. I am so excited to get started!
Welcome to the community folks!
Katha, could you describe what this garden table will be doing? What I'm picturing and what you have in mind could be worlds apart.
Welcome to the group, I saw your photograph of your work bench and It is pretty nice for your first build. It shows that you have the skills and talent with a desire to acheive in woodworking.
I also read that you are interested in a plan for a garden table. Depending on what you are wanting to use the table for will depend on what type to build. If it is a potting table or a table to display plants on the bench you just finished would serve as the basic structure. By adding on or altering it you can build yourself a nice garden bench suited to fit what you are wanting.
My neighbor just build a patio table to display some of his plants and flower pots on and got the plan from Sunset Magazine. My wife is interested in building one as well so I looked on line in the DIY sites and found this one which is from Sunset magazine. The link is:
My wife is interested in the third pictured one which is labeld as "Backyard center" the plans are in a PDF format and are pretty detailed. The down load is free. In looking at this plan you will note that the basic is like the bench you have. There is another one numbered 5 photo " Mobile table" of which is pretty nice aswell and has a detail plan that you can use.
Again welcome to the Kreg Jig Community and best wishes for many exciting projects.
