About Project

Author Notes: 

Hello friends! 

I'm at Haven this week, teaching a beginning carpentry class to other DIY Bloggers! One of the very few reasons I'd ever even think about leaving Alaska on the longest day of the year!

And at Haven, I'm also meeting my good friends Ashley and Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic for the first time in person!  I am just so excited!  Ah, the building tales we will have to share!

Today, we have a special treat from Ashley - a side table that covers and umbrella!  Of course, it's inspired by the Pottery Barn Chesapeake Umbrella side table, and you can DIY it for hundreds less!

Here's from Ashley:

 This table was so easy to build and it adds so much to my back yard! With the $250 I saved building it myself, I was able to purchase a great umbrella and still come in under $100!

Thanks Ashley!  Please stop over and read more about the stain she used and yep - those are DIY chaise lounges too!

General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

Step 1

Umbrella Stand Hampton

Build two sides as shown in the diagram above. Note that a Kreg Jig is highly recommended here. If you use a single PH just make sure the joint is glued so it doesn't twist out on you later.

TIP: Drill 3/4" PHs along the edges so you can attach the other sides in step 3 with screws all hidden on the insides. Also consider drilling 3/4" PHs facing upward for attaching top in later steps too.

Step 2

And build two of these guys too.

TIP: Consider drilling 3/4" PHs facing upward for attaching top in later steps.

Step 3

Now attach the four sides.

Step 4

Build the top as shown above. To fit an umbrella through, you notch a half circle out of each of the center 1x2 boards.

Step 5

And then finish off the base with some trim.

Finishing Instructions

Preparation Instructions: 
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.

Amazing! I was just pricing

Amazing! I was just pricing umbrella stands and didn't like what I was seeing. This will be perfect. And the cheapo flower pot umbrella weight is so ingenious!!

Can't wait to build this.

Can't wait to build this. How do you keep the umbrella from moving around and keep it vertical?
