Build A Patio Harvest Table Photos by Wayne Brown; Illustration by Len Churchill INFO: DIFFICULTY - 2/5, LENGTH/TIME - 2/5, COST - 3/5 The first step in building any table is determining its overall dimensions.
Height is typically 30", so this is a dimension you do not want to change significantly.If you already have patio chairs you might want to check that they will fit under the aprons.Adding an inch or so to the overall height won't throw things off too much, but any more might be too much.
The width of the table is determined purely by personal preference.However, for aesthetic reasons, I like to use a width that is a full increment of the 5/4" × 6" deck boards that will be used as the table top.
This avoids having to rip boards to meet the width requirement.Another thing to consider when determining the width of the table is whether an umbrella will be incorporated into the design.If this is the case, you may want to choose a width that requires an odd number of deck boards, so the hole for the umbrella pole is cut in the center of a board instead of on the join between two boards.
