Looking good. Did you put any kind of protective clear coat on it?

Nice table, love the built in cooler. What did you use for that? I like the inclusion of Yuengling, but that Miller Lite seems out of place.

We will be using a exterior Helmsman spar urethane. Cooler was just made from 18 ga galvanized sheet stock.

Really cool table. The cooler is not big enough for my needs :^)

Looks good and sturdy. Like the stain and how you made the legs. Great for outdoor picnics. Great job!
