I started by doing a glue up on all the cypress to rout the radius. much easier then working individual pieces. then after a rip on the table saw it lined up with our pre fabricated steel bases with anchoring bolts. routing out the inlay for the bracket system with tough but I’m happy with the table. we use red and white vinegar with 3 coats conversion varnish. more pics later.

Very nicely finished.
Can you provide some additional information about using vinegar during the finishing process.

@jaycee123 just a 1/2 and 1/2 mixture of red and white distilled vinegar using a green scotch pad to apply and let soak for about 10-20 mins that had two coats but its just until you like it really. we sanded in between lightly just for the grain raise and use 3 coats conversion varnish.

@dannmarks the tables took about 1 week to build. its made from 8/4 Louisiana cypress about 110” long and 40” high we had the bases made in a local shop and powder coated. the hardest part was dealing with the bending after we ripped it back to pieces we had to use metal shims and spacers to force them completely straight to line up with machine bolts. it took a couple guys and some force but they look very cool. kind of a knights of the round table look. thanks for the interest

Going through old projects on LJ and nearly 2 years later I just found yours and have to comment.
This is a really attractive piece.
The finish looks ultra smooth…....Hope it is holding up to daily use.
Well done.
