This is a garden table that I’ve made for my parents. It measures 150×150x76cm
The wood is afrormosia. I’ve made it last summer. It has no finish on it.

Found Afrormosia on Wikipedia called African Teak. It looks rugged enough to withstand the weather. Is photo six a glue-up ? If so, how did you fit in the last tabletop pieces.

Yeh, afrormosia is also used as the cheaper teak, but it’s just as tough. And I find it a very beautiful wood species, as you can see on picture 4.
In photo 6, all the tabletop pieces are inserted but the spacing wasn’t even between the pieces yet.
The spacing had to be 6mm (1/4”) so I used M6 bolts as a spacer.

Have your say...
