DIY Outdoor Table with Bottle Opener

Who likes cleaning up bottle caps after a party? Not me.... This table has a bottle opener with magnetic cap catcher built right into it. For more details on how I did that, watch the video below. RYOBI sent me a drill press which was perfect for this application. It could be done with a hand drill but the speed and accuracy I achieved with the drill press far surpassed using a hand drill.

I primarily use this table as a buffet table or serving table. I think it would be a bit narrow as a dining table, so if you want to use it as a dining table just make it a bit wider.

Assemble short sides using pocket holes and screws

Attach long aprons to connect the 2 short sides

Measure for supports and cut to length

Attach supports with pocket screws

Attach corner braces. But don't do what I did. Make them the same thickness of the aprons so the boards for the top can rest on them. I wasn't thinking and I had to go back and fix this.

I used these z clips to fasten the table top planks. You can also use pocket holes if you like.

Finish attaching the top planks and then it's done!
