This is a patio table I built with live edge bald cypress and repurposed barn wood. Clear coated with polyurethane.

That looks great. Did you fabricate the legs and scrollwork?

Beautiful use of the live edge for elegance and great wood grain placement.

Metal frame from an old patio table, wire brushed and painted flat black. Put some barn wood behind the metal scroll work. Barn wood down the center of table sanded lightly to leave saw marks and add character. The live edge cypress on this project was actually from a single board 1”X15”X8’ with live edge on 2 sides. Ripped down the middle, then added barn wood between the 2 halves. Used the live edge of the drop offs to make the end strips. Bald Cypress has fuzzy bark, so I sanded the bark as smooth as I could without losing the dark color. All pieces are glued and pocket screwed together. Four coats of polyurethane sanded between the last 2 coats with 220 grit. Table top is 36”X50”

The top is a beautiful eye catcher. I always liked the live edge look. Great job !!! Mel
