Project Information

I was asked to make an outdoor table top based off a picture the client had seen for a DIY project. The top was in a herringbone style. I sketched it up (not really, used SketchUp) in a few different formats hoping to get them to reconsider the herringbone pattern. I was hoping to make the build a bit simpler and to save myself some time on the glue up. I was not able to convince the client, so I went with what they wanted (image that). The top is made out of 5/4" x 6" Western Red Cedar. Mortise and tenon joinery with loose tenons. The finish is two coats of brown maple solar lux stain followed by three coats of a spar urethane, sprayed.

It turned out beautiful! I can see why the client wouldn't budge.

Well, now my wife wants me to make her a patio table based on some picture she saw of a really nice herringbone pattern. Thanks for that.

That's a really sharp looking table. Wish I had a place for something like that.

Your welcome. I would show her the straight version of that table. Much easier to glue up!
