Rustic Style Red Cedar Small Dining Table/Desk/Side Board?
I finished this today, took awhile with the cold damp weather getting the finish to dry, I used 2” thick planks of Aromatic Red Cedar, cause I like that deep red/purple color “Poor Man’s Purple Heart” hehe. I used biscuits and T2 glue. I hand routed the mortises for the legs 1” deep into the top, I used 2.5-3” diameter cedar log legs and draw-knived and left alot of the darker inner cambium bark on them in places, I used epoxy to set them and kreg screws. Finish is Poly.
This would make a good desk for me :) plenty of room for my junk or a small farm table…Thanx
