This is a live edge picnic table I recently finished. The table top and benches are made from a western red cedar tree I had on my tree farm. It was milled at a local sawmill and then flattened on a dual head 52” drum sander. Base is made out of cedar 4×4 put together with mostly lap joints. Finish is 5 coats of General Outdoor Oil. Finally getting some sun out here in the NW to sit out and enjoy it. Been a long stretch of lousy weather.
