This table is now sitting on a deck of house of a very good friend of mine. It is over looking the Boat Club in Hervey Bay.. also looks over Fraser Island… I have even christened it .. twice spilt beer on it.
The slats are tongue ended and fitted into grooves in the borders and cross pieces. Borders are splined with 3/4” hardwood splines.
The upright legs are mortised into the cross base and top. Overall a nice project made from Meranti [phillipine mahogany] and Cypress.
Garden Furniture Oil .. [organic of course] finished it off.

I like working with Cypress and finishing off the job with Tung Oil…..really brings out the grain.

I know what big project a table like that can be, and you did a great job on it. Your friend should be supplying you with beer for a long time to come.
