Made a small end table for the deck out of walnut and cherry. The lap joints were time consuming but worth the work. Thanks for looking

That’s a great little table. I assume that the entire lattice is lap jointed. Did you learn anything along the way?

Also, how did you join the legs to the apron and top?

Yes the lattice is all lap joints, and using an indexing jig made it much easier. The aprons are jointed with mortise and tennon, the top is fastened with figure 8 clips

Did you use that new Rockler jig? I was wondering if it was any good?

Love the look, like a woven cane seat. Just much thicker.

There is “some attention to detail” needed for this project. Nice work!

That table is just too pretty for a deck!

Will it be sheltered from the weather? The Wood Database lists both Black Cherry and Black Walnut as “very durable” in terms of rot resistance, but I don’t recall seeing them used for outdoor furniture before.

It will be shaded and also not left outside in the elements

Very nice.
Think I might try my hand at something like this.
Well Done.

Gotcha. Probably a better bet too.
