If you want to use a wooden table outdoors, you must use wood to make the table. If you are a novice carpenter, it is better to use soft wood such as pine or spruce to make carpentry easier.

How to build a DIY furniture

At this stage, you have to draw the design of the table top on a piece of wood and cut it using a saw. 
Build the bottom of the table: You may be wondering what is meant by the underside of the table? Under the table is meant the wood that attaches to the table and helps the bases to be attached to the table and fixed.

To do this, you need to mark a few centimeters from the edge of the table and put 4 pieces of wood the size of the marked lines, put them together and connect them under the table using wood glue and screws.

Making wooden table bases

An important point to consider when preparing and building a table base is that all the bases are the same length. If the length of the table bases is not equal, the table will loosen in its place.

First cut one of the sticks to the desired size, then cut the rest of the bases to the size of the first base. In the next part, put all the bases together with a special clamp and cut the bases evenly so that one is not short and the other is not long. (Consider the first base as the original size)

Finally, sand the bases so that their surface is smooth and the sharp edge of the bases is removed. Cut the base of the table and the connect the bases to the wooden table

It is very important to connect the bases under the table. Because a little carelessness when connecting the legs can upset the balance of the table, so when connecting, you must pay attention to the fact that the legs must be at right angles.
