bucket table for the deck. this is a genius idea. you can store all the stuff in the table that you dont want to leave out in case it rains (citronella candles, pillows, etc.), then just grab it out whenever.
This is exactly the table I am looking for to go in my kitchen. Big, sturdy, rustic and totally expecting to be nicked, scratched, gouged because it's okay! It's a work/family gathering/statement piece that will last for decades and never go out of style. I am looking in my area for a woodworker who can make this for me of reclaimed oak wood.
