Donald Judd's Outdoor Dining Tables

If you've ever been to an Open House weekend or other event at Donald Judd's Chinati Foundation, you'll know just how wonderful his oversized dining tables are. Be they indoors or out, there's plenty of room for gathering everyone around:

Made of simple lumber, Judd originally constructed his pine furniture with materials he could purchase easily at the hardware store. Now the tables live on at the Chinati Foundation, the museum he established in west Texas.

Since Judd made many of his pine wood tables himself, they're also great inspiration for making a large outdoor table of your own. The great advantage here is that you can make it any size and proportion that fits your outdoor entertaining space!

Have you been to the Chinati Foundation? Did you find any inspiration there for outdoor entertaining?
