The top is Sapele with white oak in the center, cedar legs. Spar Varnish to protect it from the sun.

You can’t see them but there are 2 rails between the legs and I used tabletop fasteners connected to the rails. This allows for tabletop movement. Lots of humidity here in Michigan.

I used my table saw to cut a groove in the rail inserted the connector in the slot and screwed the connector to the tabletop. This was the first time I used these and it took a couple of tries to get the slot cut right so that the top wouldn’t move.
