This table is from salvaged red cedar. weight is about 130Lbs and made knowing my nephews would be sitting on it while playing Xbox. the boards were camphored and glued up w/ 45 corners, which turned out to be way more work than worth, and the joints took some reworking. I should have had a pic from the underside to show connection. There are three cross boards for strength and to dowel the legs onto.

Very cool use of wood. It turned out great. The table looks like it was a pain in the keeeester, but also looks like it was worth it.
Great job.

Really really great looking table and build. Something unusual like this becomes an instant heirloom.
