Just finished putting the first coat of stain (Cabot’s Mahogany Flame) on this rustic outdoor table I built for my wife. Started in early November but didnt make the Dec 25 deadline due to cold weather and some travel. She is delighted! See the old plastic table that we had before. Nice upgrade, dont’cha think? Used rough cut cedar from the big box store. I don’t have a jointer/planer so i tried to pick out straight pieces and then did a little hand planing and a lot of sanding. Half-lap joints for the bread board ends and pinned them using decorative black walnut dowels and Titebond III glue. Turned out real well considerning i designed it myself with no plans. now to build the chairs…

The design is well proportioned and the thru tenons are a nice touch. Nicely done.

I really like the way that finish looks on cedar. I’m going to try something similar. Off to may favs it goes. Thanks for sharing.

Looks great! Where did the plans for this table come from, or is this a one of a kind?

Have your say...
