For x-mas my wife said she wanted a new coffee table for the front porch. It is made out of material left over from building my back deck and gazebo. And, from tiles from the habite for humanity store. I used a black cherry stain (one coat) and then sealed with an outdoor polyurethane (three coats). The accents on the legs and top were cut with router bits. Side Note: It has been cold lately so every night I carried the piece to my basement to help with the curing.

Very nice! I really like the contrast of the dark wood & lighter tiles.
