Just finished this table as a commission for a customer. All western red cedar. Table is made of 2×8 planks with breadboard ends (my 1st time). Benches have matching breadboard ends. used a combination of screws, dowels and bolts.
Table measures 12 feet by 4 feet. Benches are 5 feet by 13 inches. Legs of the table are 6×6 timbers.
Finished in Epifanes varnish – 4 coats.

Here are the links to the 2 part videos of the build.

Very cool – I like it a lot. Will probably steal some ideas from this eventually.

Massive is right. What a crew one could feed on this thing. Very nice.

Nice looking table. There are going to be some parties around that table. You did a good job David.

Very nice, I had no idea Cedar could look this nice. ‘love the leg joinery too, a mix of traditional and inventive new design.

How heavy is the table/are the benches? The Cedar wood I have used so far was extremely light-weight…

Dr. Tebi, Thanks. The table probably weighs just over 200 lbs. The benches are about 50 lbs each. The legs on the table are pretty beefy so they weigh a lot. yes, Cedar is lighter than others, but when we are working with 2×8 planks 11 feet long, it adds up quickly!
