Default Outdoor Table Rescue

I spied this on a curb and eventually toted it home . All the outer segments are loose and in need of work. The worst curved piece needs a new groove cut in it, but luckily, some of the segments are reversible , like this one.
So I only need to flip the other side and run a new groove.
I'll use some new Sipo Tenons to replace the missing tenons in the segments.
The rest of the table is just needing some clean-up

Hah, wrong about the reversible part-
Ended up making a Dutchman of sorts.

Glue up in progress. Went with Titebonds Poly glue, which is their version of Gorilla Glue. Once the foaming stops and the glue is cured, I'll see if I ruined my never-used Bessey Strap Clamp-
I should have placed some wax paper over the joints so it, and not the strap, took the brunt of the foam-out.
Oh well, next time .

I love these kind of finds
I think it's great that you're willing to pick up worn out stuff like this and give it a new life..respect
Keep us posted on how it goes. I'm betting, once you've given it a good sanding, it'll look like new again.

Thank you. Plus it's one less thing at the landfill/dump.
I'm still surprised by what gets thrown out around where I work.
I will start sanding today. I realized AFTER the glue-up that sanding the table top slats with the segments off the table would have been the easier approach.
With either Delta sander, it's doable of course, but my ETS or Rotex could have been given a clear path with no raised pieces in the way.

That's a beauty! They'll probably want it back now!

What a nice restoration. You will get years of service from that table.
