During a barbeque this past summer, Terry converted this picnic table into an umbrella table. The table umbrellas are mounted on a pole runnung through the table into a base. Terry began with a sun umbrella that had no base.
He covered the top of the picnic table with a plywood cut to size, then drilled a hole — just large enough to accommodate the umbrella pole — through the plywood and the table below
Under the table he mounted a board to serve as the base for the umbrella.
The final touch was an extra piece of 2.4 for stability. Bravo Terry!
Just add tablecloth and serve!
