Patio Table

Most of you know that my husband Carlos is crazy over woodworking. Here is the table he made for our patio a few years ago. I really like the table a lot especially the colorful tiles. I am not sure of the step by step procedure but I let the pictures do the talking. I only help him with the laying of the tiles on top of the table and also the little personal touch on the patio.

The top of the table

The edges of the table. It took him some time to do this.
Clamping up the edges (I think)

More fancy clamps ;)

Trying to figure out the best design for the tiles

The finish product!!

The legs of the table

Enjoying our BBQ and evening at this table

Some personal touch to the patio.

Gert,
Carlos memang berbakat ya... Can fix house and can make table also... It would be a little challenging for my hubby to make the table lah... He's not good at woodwork... but but, he is good in fixing car... Oil change and etc... Last weekend, he changed his co-worker's car radiator...

Adrian, you want to borrow him? Can but need to charge you for it :)

Farina, thank you. Macam beli kan meja tu :)

Cat, beside fixing everything Carlos pun pandai fixing the car. He will do all the minor repairs and changing the oil on all our cars :) :)

When I read this and saw pictures of how this patio table had been made step by step, it tells what love is to me. You meet someone, get to know someone, to like someone, to love someone, to be part of someone on and on. Happy Valentine's Day ! ^-^
