A few years back I was lucky enough to get 8 boards of 2” thick clear white cedar. I always wanted to build an outdoor project with them, but wasn’t 100% sure what to build. Last month my patio table finally deteriorated to a point that was beyond repair so I decided to build this Outdoor farm table from the Cedar. I used the FESTOOL DOMINO for all the joints – made glue up a breeze. The Skirting is White Oak painted a distressed black color. I used CETOL Window and Door stain for the top. I used Dark Oak first (2 coats) and then used Clear (4 additional coats). Not sure how it will hold up on a horizontal surface, but worst case – I’ll sand it down and start over.

Absolutely love how it turned out – seats 8 comfortably!

Looks great. And I think you’ll be happy with the Cetol. Put another clear coat on every few years and it should hold up great.

I attached the breadboard ends using Mahogany Dominos, but left them “floating” so that the breadboard end could still move. Then I pinned the Dominos to the breadboard side using Mahogany dowels. In the unfinished picture you should be able to see the Mahogany dowels visible.

I agree, I’ll likely have issues with movement, but as you said – it can be sanded down!

What a beautiful farm table. This piece is a great accent and focal point for that nice patio.
