Custom exterior table with foldup top

This is such a great design I wish I could take credit for it.  A friend of mine at church had a table for decades, which was now broken and in real bad shape.  He really liked the style of this table because when it was not being used, it took up no space, but when you wanted to use it, the ends fold up and makes a large table.

He had asked me if I could make him one to replace the broken and rotted one he had.  I was happy for the opportunity to make that table.  


Now, after building his new table I was also able to repair his old one.  I was amazed at the wood, and how beautiful the old wood came back to life with just a little TLC.  It had been painted at one point, and once I sanded and scraped all the old stuff off, the wood underneath was worth the work.
