Sneak Peek: Outdoor Folding Table

We are excited to introduce this exclusive sneak peek of our upcoming Outdoor Folding Table woodworking plan. This neat table is designed to be a multi purpose table with a variety of usages ranging from grilling, food serving, bar, potting station, and more!

Check out the photos below of this new outdoor table, ranging in stages from completed assembled to ready to put away.

There are just ten quick mount knob bolts and four leg brace wood pins involved in assembly and disassembly. The finished prototype below is made of Cedar and is finished with a Rustic Brown exterior Krylon stain.

Outdoor Finished Table

Dimensions

The fully assembled table (to include optional back upper shelf unit) dimensions are 60” in length, 18” in width and 50” height (30” table top height). When fully disassembled and folded up for storage, the complete table unit (minus optional top shelf and optional bottom shelf) measures 30” x 18” x 10”.

With the folded up top shelf unit and folded up bottom shelf unit stacked on top of the folded up table, the total height will be less than 20”. This means any storage space of 30” x 18” x 20” height can accommodate the complete table unit.

Fun Fact: This table takes five minutes to completely setup or disassemble!

Recommended Tools and Supplies

We recommend using the following tools and woodworking supplies to make the table: table saw, band saw, air nailer, woodworking clamps, drill press, socket wrench, screwdriver, wood glue, and sandpaper. All necessary assembly hardware will be available for purchase in an accompanying component package. More details will be included when we release this new woodworking plan later this year. Stay tuned!
