My goal was to make a stable table which can stand rain and weather without problem.

To make your own you'll need:

1 cabinet door (or similar)
Some 1x2 inch form bits and pieces...
1 reinforcment mesh (cabinet door sized)
Some steel wire
4 pcs x 2 inch wood screws
(Enough) fine concrete
4 legs

Make form for the table.

Note the supporting wires to keep reinforcement mesh in place.

Step 2: Heavy Duty Concrete Barbecue Sideboard

Make placeholders for legs.

Place them in a good position.

4 nice screws about 2 inches, will do the jobb.

Thanks! It is as good as new after one year out in the open... The best thing is probably that no one will ever steal it, because of the weight!
