Quick, Easy-to-Make
Patio/Deck Tables

Build one or a set of these handy little tables in a single weekend

Step 2: Move your rip fence to 2-inches and rip the stock required for the four side rails (B).

Step 3: Adjust your fence again to 1-1/2-inches and rip the stock for the four legs (C).

Step 4:Using simple cut-off stops, crosscut your stock to length for the top slats (A), side rails (B) and legs (C),  according to the list of materials.

TIP: If you're planning to make a table with components that are 24-inches long or shorter, Shopsmith's optional
adjustable Extension Face attaches quickly to your Miter Gauge to provide added efficiency and precision when cutting duplicate workpieces.

Step 5: Tilt your saw table (or arbor) to 45-degrees and cut the mitered corners for the ends of the side rails (see detail A).

Step 6: While at a 45-degrees tilt, adjust your saw's depth-of-cut and cut the saw kerfs for the splines that are used to reinforce the mitered corners (see detail A).
