I wanted to make a patio table for a long time now, I was not sure what design I wanted, until I found this table on the web:

So that’s the reference I used for this project. At first I was wondering how to do the feet, but I got help from a few lumberjoks users and decided to do hollow columns.

It was a really interesting project and I’m quite happy with the result.

Next project: the benches… I used Cetol 1 for the finish, it’s still not fully dry (that thing takes a looooong time to dry on cedar apparently)

Check my blog for more pictures.

that is a really nice clean design. I would love to know how the pocket screws hold up over time and movement.

Great project. Looks solid and much nicer that the one that inspirered it.
You look like Nick Offerman. Is that you?
