Built this for a friend. First time using rough cut wood, which was way more fun to use than big box bought wood. I ended up using deck sealant because that’s what I saw on Youtube. But, afterward was disappointed in the finish. But, I will refinish it with spar urethane next year. But, still turned out nicely.

Nice work on the table and benches. I’ve been wanting to try making a bench similar to the one that you’ve made here.

Great looking outdoor table and benches—I’m sure your friend will get a lot of enjoyment from them this summer!

Thanks everyone, it was a fun build, however there were times I wanted it to be done. Haha. It was the first time I used Titebond III and that stuff is more viscous than the other 2 and too much made it hard to handle. Anyway, thanks for the compliments!

Nice lines in the design. Building something like that from rough lumber is somehow very satisfying – sure does make a lot of sawdust!

Thanks and no kidding on the saw dust. I didn’t get a nice dust collector until after that project. I know I would’ve saved a lot of headache from clean up if I had one before hand.
