An umbrella table made out of cypress. This is my most challenging project to-date. I went the whole nine yards on this, starting with rough-cut lumber purchased at a hardwood dealer in Memphis (highly recommended: Colco Fine Woods and Tools).
Several firsts on this project beginning with using rough lumber. Also, never done a mortise and tenon joint before. This one has FIFTY-EIGHT of them! This table was almost the death of me. I poured more blood, sweat, and tears into this (literally) than anything preceding. But I am so happy with how it turned out. Took about six weeks.
These were EXCELLENT plans I got from Popular Mechanics
