i have a rooftop deck in nyc that is unfurnished. recently i passed on the street a alluminum base of a circular table that i took home with me. it seems like all it would take is a 48" diameter top bolted to the base in four spots to become a perfect outdoor dining table. i was thinking that a finished plywood circle would do the trick. the top need to be heavy so the whole thing doesn't blow away, but i was also thinking of using a drill to put lots of little holes, perhaps in a design, to let the wind go through it easily. problem is that big circles are hard to cut out, any idea if your standard hardware/wood store would do it for me? i know they cut wood to size (charging per cut)but those are usually straight. any ideas?
