About This Project

A friend of mine approached me about building something for a silent auction to benefit the Austin Boxer Rescue. After raiding my scrap pile, I found I had everything I needed to build the Kids Surfer Table and Bench Seats. I have to admit the double bevel scared me at first, and I considered ditching it and just building straight legs. I'm really glad I didn't! The splay legs look so cute, and are super solid. Plus it gives the set the added "oomph" of home made to Hand-Built and Awesome. I decided to stain the three center slats instead of white paint, and used Behr's Mermaid Treasure on the legs. The hibiscus and "surfer dude" sayings are from a can of oops! coral paint that I outlined with a fine-tipped Sharpie. I can't be happier with this little set, and am so excited to deliver it! I'm hoping one lucky kid gets to take this set home while saving a few pups in the process.

A few last thoughts, the stools are great as-is, but the surfer table would make a great bench or coffee table. Only the paint sets it aside as a "kids surfer table", the shape and slats lend a great cottage feel.

Estimated Cost: 
free, from scraps

Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Intermediate
Type of Wood:

Awesome Brooke!

I have a couple questions regarding your finish.... It's beautiful by the way!! Do you mean for this to be an outdoor set? Did you finish the top slats before you attached them to the bottom and did you fill the pocket holes? I'm working on an outdoor set now and would love to stain it instead of paint but am leary since I'm using top choice pine and not cedar or pressure treated... Just wondering how furring strips, stained hold up outside? Thanks
