Looks cool.

What finish did you use?

Very nice, I see that you solved the clamping problem of pieces that aren’t square. That is always a challenge.

Cool table. Yet another post I can NEVER let my wife see.

the finish is 3 coats of minwax Helmsman Spar Urethane, didn’t cover it up first winter, and was a little rough on it, covered it with clear plastic this last winter and is holding up quite well, might put another coat or 2 on it this year. I used plans from and although I paid for them they were excellent.

Great job. How did you attach the inside boards to the perimeter wood?

There’s 3/4 inch square strips on the bottom that the upper slats attach to. I got the plans from they we’re not free but well worth the money. the upper slats are thinner material than the outer perimeter. I will try to add a photo of the bottom stips. This table is 2 yrs old now and still great.
