I wish I had better pictures. This is a mortise and tenon table and all joinery was done with chisel and saw. The legs are tapered on all four sides with my #4 hand plane. I did use power tools to plane, joint, and rip the boards. It has quite a few coats of natural Tung Oil on it. I’ll never do that again cause it took a month for each coat to dry properly here in south Louisiana.

Thanks for looking. I’ll have another table up soon with some fancy details.

Good stuff. Love some cypress.

And I hear you bud, the weather has been horrible for finishing.

Excellent job. I really like Cypress, beautiful grain and worth all the work. It will last forever.
