A party-table is a one-of-a-kind and functional piece of furniture which is easier to assemble than you might think

An afternoon spent in the garden with friends is an opportunity for interesting conversations and a time to relax. The pleasant atmosphere of meetings may be ruined by the lack of a proper table, which would not only have room to sit all the guests, but would also i.e. cool beverages or keep the food that has been served fresh for a longer period of time.

If you dream of such a functional table, but don’t have sufficient funds, you do not have to give up on your desires. All we need are a few wooden boards, some tools, pots and a free afternoon to build ourselves a perfect and custom built for our needs piece of furniture. Such a bench in the garden will undoubtedly surprise visitors and make handling the event a lot less tiring for the host.


The secret of a party table is a cleverly situated storage compartment. It is located under the surface of the countertop and during meetings it is used as a place for ice, where you can cool not only alcohol, but also meat to grill later on. Of course, this storage area can also function as a normal storage container, which can be used to keep items useful for working and relaxing in the garden handy.

To assemble the table you will need: wooden boards, woodworking tools, nails, rectangular pots, wood varnish.

Step 1

Gather the materials needed, keeping in mind the dimensions of the planned table.


Step 2

Plan the arrangement of boards forming the countertop and pots, which will serve as storage compartments. Choose boards and pots which match in length, you’ll then be able to cover up the storage area space much easier.
