New holiday table from old boards

Summer is the time of holiday cottage. And what a holiday without a feast? You can certainly get a plastic table purchased in the supermarket, light, delicate. However, such a table, like any thing, also has drawbacks. For example, it can flap from a gust of wind at the most inopportune moment. But everything is fixable if there is old lumber in the country. The hand-made table looks more efficient and reliable, lasts longer, it will not burst from the temperature drop and will not crack under the high pressure of the load. The cost of such a table is half an hour!
Materials for work:
• Old timber size 10 x 15 - 4 heights table legs;
• Board thickness of 40 mm - 2 width + 2 length of table top;
• Edged board - 1 pc. 5 meters long;
