This beautiful outdoor dining table seats up to six, but can be easily customized to seat more (or less). I learned all this the hard way after making my first outdoor table (not with Ana's plans).

I just finished building the table top with the same decking you used from Lowes and ripped it down to 5″. I'm going to warn you, there are a lot of steps in building this table thus being the bazillion of how to pictures.
I am about to make this table as well (just bought the lumber today), and I spent a while trying to figure out how to get around ripping the boards, but I think that would make for much less of a clean, finished look.
And place your 38" 2x4 into the notches, making each edge flush to the outside edge of the 4x6. Connect them to the 2x4 that is held in the notches on the leg.To do this, I turned the table upside down. Securing with wood glue first and not placing a screw will give you some leniency when placing the pieces so you can move them and replace them if need be.
Also, when you are laying the boards across the top of the table, make sure the grain on the board alternates up and down. I LOVE the look of this table, but would like to try it as a square top to better fit our dining area.
Most tables are around 31 inches, I decided a little higher for the chairs I currently have worked best.
I will need to pick up a table saw and would like to seek some advice on what kind to get.
I looked into staining with tea, but didn't want to wait forever for the process, so I began experimenting with some stain and paint and came up with the perfect look for the table top.
This will help your table stay relatively flat as the boards expand in the wet and the sun.
